SRT’s The Little Company (TLC) continues its 2014 season with a new original children’s musical, The Nightingale, adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen classic The Emperor and The Nightingale.

With pop/hip hop score, The Nightingale will be unlike any children’s show seen before in Singapore. With book and lyrics by internationally acclaimed writer Mike Kenny (Railway Children), and music by Young Artist Award winner Ruth Ling.

This is a wonderfully moving story about a plain looking, brown Nightingale that spellbinds the Emperor of China with her lilting birdsong. The Emperor captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment, but alas, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost, and a singing mechanical bird replaces her. Follow her on her quest to regain her voice and fly freely again. This is a wonderful tale that reminds us to appreciate and value the world around us.

After a six week run in English, audiences will also enjoy the opportunity to watch The Nightingale being performed in Mandarin for four weeks. The story could not be better suited to the job, especially since it’s a classic Chinese tale.
