The Emperor and the Nightingale

The Emperor and the Nightingale


Upfront Puppet Theatre's Easter production.
A puppet show using traditional marionettes, based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen. A beautiful & lyrical production with Chinese flute music by Yue Guo.
A nightingale sings and charms the Emperor, until a mechanical bird takes its place. When the mechanical bird explodes, the real nightingale returns to sing on its own terms. It is free and sings of the beauty that it sees in the natural world in which it lives.
The show is suitable for ages 4 - 94.
The show lasts approx 1.5 hours with an interval in the middle.
Meet the puppets and puppeteers after the show.
Book online via our website and choose your seats or telephone to book and pay by card. (£1.00 - £1.50 booking charges apply)
On-site cafe/restaurant for refreshments and meals.
