The Nightingale

Presented by: Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre

In ancient China, a small bird teaches the great Emperor the value of simple things and true friendship. Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story, the exotic music, colourful puppets, and wonderful setting make this show one of Rag & Bone’s most enduring favourites. One highlight is the scene with the Chief Counselor, who is “so snobby that all he ever says is “P”. And “P” means nothing at all. But to the Emperor, he has to bow so low that his forehead touches the floor. And that’s not easy. Just watch him try it.”
