Description: This fairy tale classic by Hans Christian Andersen dances onto Stages’ main stage this March. The Emperor’s nightingale sings more beautifully than any other creature in the kingdom, but is suddenly replaced by a bejeweled mechanical bird that proves to be more predictable. When the mechanical bird eventually breaks down and the Emperor is taken ill, however, the real nightingale returns to restore the Emperor’s life through its uncompromisingly beautiful song. The story about the power of real beauty to stir the heart is told through original music and dance. It continues Stages’ popular collaboration with Escalate Dance that brought you Owl Moon, Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Snow Queen and The Velveteen Rabbit.

A dance-inspired original performance based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.
In collaboration with Escalate Dance.

Target age range: recommended for all ages
