About the Show

Written by Lori Marshall & Joseph Leo Bwarie
Directed by Joseph Leo Bwarie

There once lived a young Emperor in ancient China. His golden palace was filled with the rarest of treasures. Still, not satisfied with all his wealth and power, the Emperor devised a plan to capture China's famous singing nightingale.

The Enchanted Nightingale is the classic story of boy gets bird, boy loses bird, boy gets bird back. But there's a twist! The songbird is really the beautiful Princess Jade trapped under an evil spell. With fan dancing, martial arts, and a healthy helping of comedy, this modern adaptation celebrates the wealth in generosity and the magic and beauty of the Far East.

The Enchanted Nightingale stars Kathleen Chen, Emily Kuroda ('Mrs. Kim' from Gilmore Girls), West Liang, and Simon Yin (Funky Punks: Bright Ideas!).

The Falcon has taken audiences to Paris in The Empress and her New Clothes, Russia in Peter and the Wolf, and Greece in The Little Mermaid. Now get your passports stamped again as we travel to ancient China in The Enchanted Nightingale.
