When the Emperor discovers that the greatest treasure of
the Orient if a nightingale, he demands that the bird be
brought to the palace to sing for him. The Emperor is enchanted
with the drab little bird, for her music is more beautiful
than any of his treasures. But upon receiving a new toy
bird, the Emperor soon forgets about the nightingale. Nevertheless,

dying from sadness, the nightingale returns to the palace
