Getting into his grandfather's potter workshop at night, a little boy finds an unusually large vase. Fascinated, the child feels the still-warm material, which - whether by a miracle or the hand of a magician, who knows? - at once changes into a magnificent piece of Chinese porcelain. Presently, from behind the great blue-enamelled trees, there appears a fisherman in his sampan... That's how the story of The Nightingale, told all in music, begins, as the waking dream of a child in the land of Chinese art - and of mobile phones and webcams.

Lovely music, poor production - Stravinsky: Le Rossignol review by DW

Spoiler Alert

Le Rossignol contains some of Stravinsky's most lyrical music as it tells the story of H C Andersen's The Emperor and the Nightingale.

Unfortunately here it is given overblown production values which do not at all match either the story nor the music. Whilst the singing and orchestral playing are of a high standard, in my opinion the digitally produced "sets" and background over ornament and detract from the simplicity of Andersen's fairy tale. How I wish the music could be left alone to speak for itself.....
