NIGHTINGALE is a story by Danish HC Andersen about the chinese emperor that caged a nightingale to enjoy it´s singing. The tale is said to be inspired by Andersen’s crush on the singer Jenny Lind (see image to the right), who was about to become famous throughout Europe and the United States as the Swedish Nightingale.
Jenny Lind was known in America and Europe in the 1800s, for her beautiful voice and natural singing style. She made her American debut at the Castle Garden Theatre in New York City on September 11, 1850.
