The little prince - 2018
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved tale of a pilot and a young alien prince has been delighting readers since it was first published in 1943 and has since been translated into more than 250 languages. Even if you know The Little Prince (or Le Petit Prince in its original French) by heart, you have never seen it quite like this!
With a timeless charm this family show tells the story of The Little Prince, who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the oddities of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal journey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
Told with the help of the wonderment of shadow and Japanese Bunraku puppetry, this tale touches the hearts of old and young alike.
