About

Last 5 performances! Final performance on February 23 at 5 pm. One extra performance added on February 22 at 5 pm.

Even though generally classified as literature for children, The Little Prince yields a parable that has become especially popular among adult readers. The simple tale juxtaposes the current world, which is driven by the endeavour to control nature, the dominance of technology, materialism and selfishness, with the pure view of a boy. The young hero finds sense in other things – friendship and love. He discovers them during his wanderings across seven planets, with the children’s universe clashing with that of the grown-ups. Our production combines the multi-screen technique with live acting, dance, music, song, and film projections. The tale lacks nothing of that which the audience expects: the terrestrial desert and the pilot, the inhabitants of the seven planets: the King, the Vain Man, the Drunkard, the Businessman, the Lamplighter, the Geographer or the Rose. Yet it goes without saying that the original theatre production harbours numerous surprises!

Recommended for audience 12+

The performance uses in German and English subtitles. The auspices of the production have been taken by the Ambassador of the French Republic to the Czech Republic, H.E. Mr. Jean-Pierre Asvazadourian.
