"The Nightingale"
is adapted from Hans Christian Andersen's story by the same name about an Emperor and a plain Nightingale who become friends.  Published in 1843, "The Nightingale"  quickly became one of his most well-known stories.  It is about an Emperor who is lonely and often sad.  His trusted Counselor doesn't know what to do to cheer him up, when a servant tells him of a beautiful music box that would certainly make the Emperor happy.  The Counselor presents the Emperor with the music box who is very pleased until he hears something even more beautiful - the song of the nightingale singing in his garden.

With the help of the same servant girl, the Counselor finds the nightingale and brings her to the Emperor to sing for him.  He is unimpressed with the plan-looking bird until she begins to sing.  He tells the nightingale she must stay in the palace and sing for him always, but the nightingale refuses saying she would prefer to live in the garden where she can fly freely.  The Emperor doesn't trust her and, after an argument, the nightingale flies away.

The Emperor decides to go back to playing his music box, but in his anger and frustration he breaks it.   He begins to cry and returns to being the lonely and desolate man he was before.  The Counselor and the servant girl work together once again to see if they can mend the situation and bring about a happy ending.
