Come on a fantastic journey through palaces, forests and beyond. This exciting new production is based on Oscar Wilde’s best loved tales, including The Happy Prince and The Nightingale and the Rose.

Join a live band of storytelling musicians, as they try to choose a new statue for the town square. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the lovesick Student?

Multi award winning theatre company Tall Stories (Olivier-nominated producers of The Gruffalo) return with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.

Presented by Sydney Opera House, Tall Stories and Nica Burns Productions.
