The Princess’ Nightingale

A thrilling new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Nightingale.”

Written by Damon Chua

In eighteenth century China, the prince and the princess of the dynasty embark on a magical competition to learn the wonders of their land. Will they be distracted by the glitter of royalty and fantastical entertainment or will they learn the lessons of the Nightingale and see the world with compassionate eyes?

A co-production with Mu Performing Arts, the region’s leading theatre celebrating Asian artists and culture, this production is sure to dazzle with music, dance, puppetry, and a heart-felt story of learning to see the world.

This season premiers Theater Mu’s experimental Pay As You Are pricing. Mu strives to voice the stories of the Asian American community, and in order to bring performances to those communities whose stories they tell, Mu is committed to make them as accessible as possible. Pay As You Are pricing asks those who routinely pay $35-$40 for theater tickets to choose to pay that; it is the actual fair market value of the ticket. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less – as little as $5 per ticket.
