WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Audiences will be transported to the time of the Song Dynasty, when an ailing Emperor, who has been captivated by the elegant, yet simple Nightingale's song, keeps her caged to sing for him and ease his distress. However when he is presented with the mechanical and colorful Jade Bird, he quickly loses interest in the Nightingale, who returns to the forest. When the Jade Bird's song fails to improve the Emperor's condition, the Nightingale returns to the palace and saves the Emperor from death. The Emperor then realizes that true beauty lies within and is transformed into the wisest ruler in the land.
