Once upon a time there was a Chinese emperor who loved toys, technical novelties, machines of all kinds, and mechanical puppets. Then one day he received an unusual gift: a mechanical nightingale wound up with a key. But can it replace the lovely song of a live nightingale? And what happens if the toy breaks?

Let’s listen to Andersen’s fairy tale The Emperor’s Nightingale and experience it together in an enchanting musical setting by the composer Václav Trojan. The members of the Trojan Trio will provide the non-traditional accompaniment. The script is by Eva Kočerová.

The programme is based on a musical part but also on a spoken word that will be given in Czech language only. The programme will not be supplied with English subtitles.
