“…stunning talent, emotion and poetry.” 

Le Figaro, France

“What is essential is invisible to the eye, it is only with the heart that one can truly see”

One of the world’s most loved stories transformed into an extraordinary live event.

This contemporary adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's work combines dance, aerial acrobatics, and new technologies to create a dreamlike and poetic universe that is almost impossible to describe.

“All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.”

Nearly 75 years after its release, The Little Prince remains one of the best-selling books in the world and the second most translated. Its sentiment remains as pertinent today as when it was first written.

With an incredible cast, stunning sets, costumes, projections and all of the characters you know and love, immerse yourself in The Little Prince’s cosmic and fantastic world.

Presented by the Sydney Opera House in association with Broadway Entertainment Group.


Choreography and Direction: Anne Tournié Adaptation and Co-direction: Chris Mouron Original Music: Terry Truck 


Based on the original book of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Editions Gallimard 1945
