“We can only see properly with our hearts. Our eyes cannot see what is truly important.” It was 1943 when Antoine de Saint-Exupéry first expressed this lasting insight, in his heart-warming story “The Little Prince”. Since then, it has lost none of its power – in fact, quite the opposite! And the this production — a moving little opera for children, which Gerald Wirth has fashioned from the magical story of a diminutive interplanetary traveller who sets out to make some good friends — has an impact which is equally contemporary and relevant. The composer and Artistic Director of the Vienna Boys’ Choir has chosen to refresh his 1997 work here at MuTh. This latest version has been enhanced by the addition of a new role: a singing narrator, played by the celebrated tenor Michael Schade.
