After sell-out seasons in France, Dubai, and the Sydney Opera House earlier this year, the cosmic and fantastic world of The Little Prince returns directly from Paris due to overwhelming demand. Making a triumphant return to Australia at West HQ’s Sydney Coliseum Theatre from 1 January 2022 for a strictly limited 3-week season.
More than 75 years after its release, Antoine de Saint- Exupéry’s The Little Prince remains one of the best-selling books ever published. The classic story loved by generations now comes to life as an innovative theatre spectacular live on stage.
As the first major international touring cast to come to Australia since the industry was shut down by the global pandemic, this spectacular and extraordinary adaptation of the classic French novella, The Little Prince immerses the audience in a unique and innovative stage production that captures the heart and challenges the imagination.
Director Anne Tournié said “For me, it’s a melting pot from around the world and from different cultures, but in the end we are all human with emotions, and the Little Prince is emotion”.
“West HQ is delighted to be presenting, in association with Broadway Entertainment Group, The Little Prince. We are excited to be able to launch our 2022 season with a show of this calibre, giving visitors from around Australia a new reason to visit Western Sydney,” said Richard Errington, CEO, West HQ.
