Moreška is a battle dance with swords which, together with the dramatic plot and musical accompaniment, forms a unique, connected whole. The armies of the Black and the White King fight for the righteous victory of love within the seven fencing figures or the kolap. Black King Moro has kidnapped White King Osman’s fiancée – the Bula. In the last figure, the army of Black King Moro is defeated. As a sign of humility, he falls to the ground and hands King Osman the weapon and the Bula. King Osman frees the Bula from her chains, lifts the veil covering her face and kisses her.
