Description

"The Emperor's New Clothes" (Danish: Kejserens nye Klæder) is a short tale by Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes that are invisible to those unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!" The tale has been translated into over a hundred languages.[1]

"The Emperor’s New Clothes" was first published with "The Little Mermaid" in Copenhagen by C.A. Reitzel on 7 April 1837 as the third and final installment of Andersen's Fairy Tales Told for Children. The tale has been adapted to various media including the musical stage and animated film.

The China Children Art's Theatre will stage this famous fairy tale in Xi'an for 4 weeks. Since 1978, the theater has continued to stage many prize-winning plays, including the "Newspaper Boy," "Strange 101," "The Secret of Handan Bird," "My Childhood on the Black Soil Land," "Boy Zhi," "A Black Boy on the Great Wall," "The Origin of Human Feeling," "The Emperor's New Clothes," "So Good to Know You" and "Green Bird." The theater has also toured in Singapore and Hong Kong.
