This event is sponsored by the Bologna Performing Arts Center.
The Emperor’s New Clothes is packed with action, laughs, magic tricks! Lots of fun is in store when Peter, the mischievous tailor, comes up with his sure-fire get rich quick scheme–to embarrass the vain Emperor and make off with a basket of gold! Peter uses all his wit and magic to convince the court he can make magic clothes! Only those who are very smart can see the clothes, he tells them. So everyone pretends they can see the clothes until… someone in the audience shouts out the truth! The audience participates by helping Peter make the sound of the looms working so the Emperor will think he’s making cloth. They also participate in the magic tricks and the Emperor’s hilarious parade!
