The Nightingale 夜莺 : Giveaway



If you are a child from the 80s or 90s, you might be familar with Hans Christian Anderson classics such as 'The Little Mermaid, , 'The Emperor with no clothes' , 'The Ugly duckling ', ' The Nightingale' and more. From observation, children of today are less exposed to such classical tales as they are bombarded by popular pop culture. It is a waste in my opinion as I had fond memories of these stories of yesteryear and appreciated the morals behind the stories

Thankfully SRT's The Little Company (TLC) current production 'The Nightingale' plans to fill this gap. TLC has been providing quality theater production for children age 2-12 in Singapore. This is a refreshing new take on Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved fairy tale. Directed by Kate Golledge (Red Riding Hood, 2013), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us all to appreciate and value the world around us.

"The Nightingale" is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. When the Emperor is near death, the nightingale's song restores his health.
The lyrics is written by Mike Kenny and music by local song writer Ruth Ling. The Nightingale is suitable for children age 3-8

Having watched TLC ' Dr Seuss : Cat in the Hat ' , we think this production should be equally entertaining. There will be two versions of the show. The English version will ran from now till 14th September, while the Chinese version 夜莺 will start from 18th Sept to 11th Oct.
