Making a triumphant return to Australia at West HQ’s Sydney Coliseum Theatre from 1 January 2022 for a strictly limited 3-week season. The classic story loved by generations now comes to life as an innovative theatre spectacular live on stage.
More than 75 years after its release, Antoine de Saint- Exupéry’s The Little Prince remains one of the best-selling books ever published. The international phenomena has sold a stunning 200 million copies in 250 languages to become the second most translated book in modern history.
As the first major international touring cast to come to Australia since the industry was shut down by the global pandemic, this spectacular and extraordinary adaptation of the classic French novella, The Little Prince immerses the audience in a unique and innovative stage production that captures the heart and challenges the imagination.
“For me, it’s a melting pot from around the world and from different cultures, but in the end we are all human with emotions, and the Little Prince is emotion,” said Director Anne Tournié.
The grand-scale performance brings to life the tale of an aviator lost in the desert who meets The Little Prince who has flown from one planet to another meeting compelling characters in a vivid dreamlike universe of dance, costumes, music, acrobatics, and ground-breaking video mapping technology that immerses audiences in an extraordinary adventure.
