The Nightingale + 2 tickets for giveaway!

‘The Emperor and The Nightingale’ is one of the few stories from my childhood days that I’m still familiar with. So when I saw that Singapore Repertory Theatre’s The Little Company (TLC) adapted this story and came up with a new original children’s musical, The Nightingale, I thought it was excellent opportunity to share the story with my kids.

For those who haven’t heard before, the story is 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.

Watch to find out how the Nightingale regains her voice and fly freely again, and how the Emperor learns to appreciate and value the world around him.

With pop/hip hop score, The Nightingale will be unlike any children’s show seen before in Singapore. The songs are catchy and there was good effort for interaction with the audience.

Verdict: The cast were great! I especially loved the performance of The Emperor’s Protector. The husband was impressed with the voice (literally) behind The Nightingale. The cub loved the show and us adults were very much  entertained too. It was a tad advanced for my 2yo dragonlady to appreciate for now but she definitely enjoyed watching the singing and dancing. We will return for more SRT’s performances!

In ‘Good Things Must Share’,we have a pair of tickets for the 11am show on Saturday, 6 September 2014 to give away to MissusTay.com’s readers!
