Two charming tales of fantasy come to life in these early 20th-century one-act operas in which the human and non-human worlds meet in magical ways. The Nightingale is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale about an emperor whose love for a real nightingale’s song is challenged by the tinkling of a mechanical bird he receives as a gift. In The Child and the Spells, a misbehaving young boy learns a valuable lesson from the animals, objects and even plants he has harmed.

All productions include projected English text.

Funded in part by a grant from the John P. Murphy Foundation.
