Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's masterpiece is part of world literature and has been part of our cultural heritage for over 75 years. For children, the show is recommended from 8 years.
The "children's book for adults", as the author wanted it to be understood, was first published over 75 years ago and has been translated into more than 110 languages. In 2015, Saint-Exupéry's masterpiece was turned into a colourful and exciting musical for adults, but one that children can also understand. Since then, the musical has been enthusiastically received by audiences of all generations, and full of emotion and visual surprises, conveys the message of the little prince to the audience in an entertaining way. Great voices and wonderful melodies alternate with fast-paced dance scenes and spectacular multimedia animations. In addition to the prince and the pilots, the 12 performers bring to life familiar characters such as the rose, the fox and the snake.
The musical was enthusiastically received by the press:
"This great little story with its clever poetry was put into a libretto by Jochen Sautter and translated into music by Deborah Sasson. Each scene is carried by appropriate melodies. The vain torero struts in flamenco time, the snake writhes in oriental belly dance sounds with a fulminant hard rock ending, and the king is accompanied by marching music". Südkurier / 9.1.16
"A heart-touching new musical has found its way onto Germany's stages: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been musically staged by singer/composer duo Deborah Sasson and Jochen Sautter and has been enthusiastically received." Magazine News/ 30.1.16
"the audience had to wait a bit, but it was worth it. For the elaborate video animations (Daniel Stryjecki), the 3-D effects that seemed to take the audience along on the prince's journey past various planets to Earth and through the desert, were an impressive experience." Remscheider Generalanzeiger/ 6.1.18
"In my first review of 2015, I described Sasson's/Sautter's "The Little Prince - The Musical" as "the rose of the little prince, which through much loving care can grow over time into a proud beautiful flower." This is the care the work has received over the years since its premiere - the rose has blossomed brilliantly, taken its permanent place in the "rose garden of musicals" and will likely continue to be nurtured so that this special rose retains its uniqueness. The message in the audience's big final applause is clear: "Come back soon, little prince!" New Merker/December 2016
The Little Prince-The Musical is a sensational show of great emotion. 100 minutes of pure entertainment for the whole family.
For children, the show is recommended for ages 8 and up.
