The Emperor's Nightingale Summary

The Emperor’s Nightingale is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s story The Nightingale, set in 18th-century China, and brings to light the youthful exploits of the future Emperor Qianlong. He befriends a magical bird who helps him learn what he must do to be King. The play employs traditional Chinese lion dance, puppetry, and a pair of tigers and pandas to tell this fun, thrilling tale.

Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, in its 42nd Season in 2018-19, is launching its new education initiative with the New York Premiere of The Emperor’s Nightingale by Damon Chua, directed by Chongren Fan. This production emphasizes the importance of leadership guided by a moral compass, through the story about two rival teen brothers competing for the throne.
