"Here, at last, is a true lover!"

In a shady grove, surrounded by buzzing and budding creatures, on a branch of the tallest Oak tree, the Nightingale has sung of love her entire life. Never has she seen or experienced it, but her heart tells her there is nothing so dear - until she meets The Student and the dream she has always dreamed finally looks as though it could become a reality. But dreams are hard to achieve and there is always a price to pay for ultimate happiness…

The Nightingale & the Rose & Other Tales’ is beautifully crafted, i
nventive physical and musical storytelling, based on two of Oscar Wilde’s haunting fairy tales, ‘The Nightingale & the Rose’ and ‘The Birthday of the Infanta.This is a wonderful duo of tales about love and ignorance; selflessness and waste, filled with magic and classic Wildean wit yet scarcely seen on stage.
