The Empress & The Nightingale

The Empress and The Nightingale is The Bluebirds own re-telling of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale of the magic of song. It’s a story-telling show specially for children and families and brings to life the wonderful characters in the magical space of The Popera House. Meet the Empress and China, the brown nightingale and the magnificent clockwork nightingale, and most important of all, meet Lu Xi the clever little kitchen maid who navigates you skilfully through the story. As with all Bluebird show, The Empress and the Nightingale has a feast of music, handmade bespoke puppets and interactive musical elements.

The show is touring in The Popera House in early summer 2021. It could be coming to a venue near you! If you are interested in booking the show and The Popera House then get in touch.


The show includes Puppetry and works really well when booked alongside a Shadow Theatre Puppet or an Early Years Creative Music Workshop.

We are available to tour to schools in or near Somerset, uk from £400 including a workshop or a second show tailored to the age groups. Suitable especially for Early Years and KS1.
