The Emperor's Nightingale by Damon Chua is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Nightingale" set in 18th-century China. It brings to light the youthful exploits of the future Emperor Qianlong, who befriends a magical bird who helps him learn what he must do to be king. The play employs traditional Chinese lion dance, puppetry, and a pair of tigers and pandas to tell this fun, thrilling tale. A show for the whole family.
