The Nightingale and the Emperor (6+) – afternoon

Music performance based on the poetic fairy tale of the Chinese Nightingale and the Emperor by Hans Christian Andersen. Singer Karin Strobos and her ensemble take you along in this poetic music performance, based on the fairy tale by the famous Hans Christian Andersen. Monique Krüs made beautiful music for it.
