A brand new musical adapted from
‘The Emperor's Nightingale’ by Hans Christian Andersen
I Theatre is presenting the World Premiere of The
Nightingale -- a brand new musical adapted from ‘The Emperor's Nightingale’ by
Hans Christian Andersen -- at the AGF Theatre, Alliance Française from 24 May
to 5 Jun 2005 .
Part of the Hans Christian Andersen 2005 worldwide
Celebration, this BRAND NEW Asian themed family-centred musical will feature a
fusion of both Western and Asian techniques, carefully interweaving live
action, puppetry and tuneful original songs.
By using a simple and clear story that even the youngest
can follow, but with themes and issues very relevant to teens and adults we
have created a heart-warming and colourful dramatic experience for everyone.
Money and power cannot buy happiness; and sometimes life's
greatest treasures come in a very plain wrapping.
In this beautiful story, an Emperor with all wealth and
power at his command is amazed when he finds true joy in the simple song of a
small brown nightingale. It brings him something that none of his money or
influence can provide.
However, things get complicated when an imitation
nightingale is brought to the Emperor. Will he choose the seemingly better
performance of the mechanical bird, or the untamed and unpredictable beauty of
the real thing?
The Emperor finds out to his cost that you can't replace
the truth with an imitation, however good it may seem – and it's up to the
most unlikely team of a kitchen maid and a wild bird to save the Emperor and
the whole Empire from a major disaster!
