A revival of a recent masterpiece
Hailed as a masterpiece at its sold-out world premiere in Toronto and a subsequent tour to New York, the COC is thrilled to revive Robert Lepage’s The Nightingale and Other Short Fables. A blending of exquisite visuals, whimsical puppetry, and emotional storytelling, this magical mélange combines the best of Stravinsky, in a program designed to delight audiences of all ages.
