1:00pm: The Emperor’s New Clothes
The emperor loves clothes. His favorite thing to do is to dress up in lavish new outfits of the latest and boldest styles and admire himself for hours on end in his great imperial mirror. The emperor is a silly man. Then one day a weaver arrives who claims to weave a very special cloth – a fabric so fine, so delicate, says he, that garments crafted from it are totally invisible to anyone but the most clever and sophisticated citizens. The emperor is delighted. He simply must have such an outfit and he simply must wear it in a grand procession through the capital city. What could go wrong? Right?…Adapted from the story by Hans Christian Andersen.
