Musical Stories «the chinese nightingale»

with music by Igor Strawinsky
For children 7 years and older, with adult accompaniment

The Emperor of China must learn from a travel guide that the nightingale’s song is the most beautiful thing to experience in his magnificent gardens. He immediately sends his servants to bring a nightingale to his palace. And indeed, the emperor loves the nightingale’s enchanting song above all else.

One day, the Japanese emperor gives him an artificial nightingale, richly decorated with jewels, which can sing exactly the same melody countless times in a row. But after only a year the mechanical bird breaks down. And the real nightingale has escaped the confines of the palace...

On the Studiobühne, children learn that stories can be told not only with words, but with music. They learn about the different effects of music and get to know different instruments. Children and adults aren’t just spectators: they get to sing, dance, help shape the events of each story, and can even get on stage with the artists.

starting at 3.30pm, duration: 75 min

CHF 15 Child, CHF 20 Adult
