The Emperor’s New Clothes

Presented by PYT Juniors

A folktale written by Hans Christian Andersen, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” explores questions on human vanity, self-deception and conformity. In pursuit of the most beautiful clothes in the world, an Emperor hires two imposter weavers who offer magnificent clothes invisible to “stupid and incompetent” persons. When confronted with the invisible clothes, characters are faced with a moral dilemma - to tell the truth, or lie and save themselves from social ridicule? A virtual performance.
