About This Show

An emperor locked away deep in his precious porcelain palace and surrounded by bumbling courtiers believes himself to be the wisest man in all of China. Not until he hears the nightingale?s enchanting song of freedom and joy does he realize there is something more to life. Enthralled by her song, he tries to hold the nightingale captive, but she escapes, as it is the true nature of all things to be free. Hans Christian Anderson’s The Nightingale is filled with dance, color, narrative, incredible costumes, humor, action, and joy.
