The Little Prince: A Magical Opera is in two acts based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. After being forced to land his plane in the Sahara desert a pilot is awakened by the gentle but determined voice of a Little Prince with a strange history. The two become unlikely friends, and while experiencing lessons from the desert’s many creatures, together they discover what is essential in life. Working with the Milnes Studio Artists conducted by Michael Ching and directed by Chad Sonka, this collaboration with Chatham County schools allows young students to learn, conceptualize and present this great work as part of the Festival.
A 90-minute opera sung in English with Supertitles.
