TEHRAN -- A play based on the Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was staged by a group of German and Iranian schoolchildren at Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan on April 22.

They also took part in a workshop on the tale, which was turned into an animated film by Walt Disney in 1937.

Iranian children also entertained the German group with a theatrical adaptation of the Iranian folk tale "Mah-Pishuni".

The three girls and seven boys from Germany and a number of their teachers were invited to Iran by the Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults.

They will be visiting a number of monuments in Isfahan as well as handicrafts, carpet-weaving, and pottery workshops.

Officials will try to familiarize the German children with some aspects of the people's culture during their three-day sojourn in the city which has been dubbed "half the world".

The teachers said that Iran is the first non-European country the German students have ever visited.
