Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince is one of the greatest classics ever written for children, and for adults who have never lost touch with the world of childhood.
This original and moving show for the whole family breathes a new life in the timeless Little Prince. Director Yonatan Levy collaborates with sand artist Ilana Yahav to create an imaginative musical-theatrical adaptation of the classic novel. The story unfolds like a fan, presenting the Little Prince (Carmi Zisapel) and the pilot (Doron Tavori) on the backdrop of live and original music composed by Yehuda Zisapel, accompanied by the mesmerizing sand images created on stage in real time.
Organic to the location of the story, which is set in the desert, the sand lends itself to the creation of quick drawings of a sheep, a flower, and a star – which can be erased just as quickly. This makes for a captivating dynamic in which images materialize and disappear without leaving a trace.
Like the Little Prince, who is forever dreamy, naïve, and elusive, we are invited to be carried away on the wings of the music and watch the show as children.
