Be captivated by the friendship between a songbird and an emperor
In a spin on the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the Singapore Repertory Theatre’s production of The Nightingale sets the story in imperial China, where the Emperor keeps the beautiful songbird in a cage. However, she loses her voice and is replaced by a mechanical bird – how will she survive? Filled with clever dialogue and catchy songs, this charming tale of friendship will captivate your little one. Suitable for kids aged three and above.
