In The Nightingale', Robert Lepage incorporates the usual operatic arts, adds puppetry and acrobatics, and reverses the usual performance arrangement by placing the orchestra on the stage and turning the orchestra pit into a shimmering pool of water. This alchemy transmutes some children's tales about animals into an unusually integrated and spellbinding piece of theater.

The triumph of this Nightingale production is the way in which all the arts illuminate the music in an emotional rather than purely plot - and character-centered manner while remaining firmly grounded in storytelling... (The Wall Street Journal)
