One of the world’s most loved stories is set to be transformed into an extraordinary live event. A breathtaking, contemporary adaptation of the classic 1945 French novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) will be presented in the Sydney Opera House’s Joan Sutherland Theatre from 26 May – 6 June in an Australian exclusive premiere.
The Little Prince is a stunning spectacular of circus, dance, aerial acrobatics and ground-breaking video mapping technology. It comes to the Opera House after sell-out seasons at Folies Bergère Paris in 2019 and Dubai Opera last year.
“We adore the magic and the emotion which are created on stage by the cast and projections” ⏤ Le Parisien
“Combines choreography, aerial and terrestrial acrobatics, and new technologies in a dreamlike and poetic universe. A leap into a magical childhood” ⏤ Le Figaro, France
The highly immersive, grand-scale performance, based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s much loved 1943 children’s book, brings to life the cosmic world of an aviator lost in the desert who meets the Little Prince on his journey from one planet to another in search of a sheep. An omnipresent narrator accompanies the Little Prince as he meets many magnificent characters who communicate harmoniously through dance, gesture and movement.
Sydney Opera House Head of Contemporary Performance, Ebony Bott, says: “The Little Prince is a timeless tale that continues to resonate with both children and adults with its universal themes of loneliness, friendship, love and loss. This unmissable production, under the direction of Anne Tournié, uses movement and innovative technology to relay the delicate and eloquent poetry of the original masterpiece to the delight of audiences big and small.
More than 75 years after its release, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince remains one of the best-selling and most translated books ever published. It has been translated into over 300 languages and dialects, and has sold an estimated 140 million copies.
This production features Choreography and Direction by Anne Tournié. It is adapted and co-directed by Chris Mouron, with Music by Terry Truck.
