Let’s listen to Andersen’s fairy tale The Emperor’s Nightingale and experience it together in an enchanting musical setting by composer Václav Trojan. We’ll listen to the ancient tale, sing with the nightingale, accompany it by making sounds using our bodies, and our emissaries will even honour the emperor by playing Orff instruments. The members of the Trojan Trio will provide the non-traditional accompaniment.
