A pilot has to make an emergency landing in the middle of the Sahara because of a plane breakdown. Water is scarce, and a race against time begins for him. How astonished the pilot is when he is suddenly awakened by a soft, delicate voice: A small creature is standing behind him and wishes him to draw him a sheep. This is the first encounter between the pilot and the Little Prince. In the following nights the pilot gets deeper and deeper insights into the mind of the extraterrestrial visitor and his numerous experiences with miraculous beings.
and his numerous experiences with strange planet inhabitants.
"The Little Prince" has been translated into over a hundred languages. Anne Burri has taken the French original and created a Basel German version. This translation is now the basis for the BMT to bring the play with the wonderful characters of Richard Koelner, newly revised with fresh voices, sounds and noises, on stage.
The play is performed with string puppets. Dialect. Ages 12 and up.
