Children show “The Emperor’s Nightingale”

The Emperor’s infinitely large garden has everything you could wish for. There are the most beautiful flowers and the rarest animals. Yet a small gray bird with its stunning vocals is really its greatest treasure. But when the emperor is offered a mechanical bird he chooses to listen to it instead of the real birdsong. He can’t stop listening to the artificial nightingale’s song, but what happens when the mechanical bird wear out and fall silent ? “The Emperor’s Nightingale “, after a story by Hans Christian Andersen is a music and theater for the whole family. The majestic Emperor plays harp, whispering wooden pipes sounds like death and high flute tones turn into the nightingale song. The stunning hand-sewn costumes and atmospheric properties makes the show even more unforgettable.
