By Hans Christian Andersen

The classic fable is brought to life in this Hans Christian Andersen story of greed and privilege. When it comes to fashion and… well, everything… this emperor knows it all, or so he thinks. A charlatan decides to profit from his bombast. He persuades the emperor that he has the world’s most exquisite fabric. The emperor pays the “tailor” a fortune, but when he goes to inspect his dazzling new wardrobe, the con artist offers a clever trick that ultimately shows the foolishness brought on by the emperor’s “sophistication.” (45 minutes)
