The King’s Nightingale

“An exclusive pleasure for those who get involved here. Pierre Filliez has created a very special “fairytale” atmosphere with his voice, facial expressions and gestures. The play ‘The King’s Nightingale’ was performed in two languages as well, with an extremely entertaining and lively shadow theatre.”

This puppet show, build in an old suitcase, is inspired by Andersen’s famous tale “The Nightingale of the Emperor of China”, where a nightingale with a marvellous song and a prodigious mechanical bird compete with each other and end up being stopped, to the great displeasure of the sovereign who owns them.
The show is easy to transport and has also been performed at bilingual events, in ‘Franco-German’.
