In a balletic adaptation of a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, a haughty ruler realizes the value of beauty to the benefit of all his subjects. After learning that the song of the nightingale is one of the most beautiful gems in the land, the emperor of China orders it to be brought before him. The bird agrees to appear and delights the emperor with its song—so much so that the emperor decides to keep the bird captive. But his attention soon drifts from the pure beauty of the bird’s song when he receives another gift: a mechanical nightingale that sings on demand and has a built-in cup holder. The question then is, can artificial music take the place of real song?
Singletary Center for the Arts
From Hugh Laurie to Dru Hill to the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the performers who've taken the stage at the Otis A. Singletary Center have been as unpredictable as they've been distinguished. The creative focal point for students at the University of Kentucky, the Center is more than a performance venue—it's also a practice space, an art museum, and one of the few rooms with enough seats for a rabbit's family reunion.
