2022 will start with some premium live entertainment as The Little Prince returns to Sydney on Saturday 1 January 2022 for a strictly limited three-week season.
The beloved stage show makes its comeback to the Emerald City after sell-out seasons in France, Dubai, and the Sydney Opera House earlier in 2021 and will be showing at West HQ’s Sydney Coliseum Theatre, direct from Paris.
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.
“West HQ is delighted to be presenting, in association with Broadway Entertainment Group, The Little Prince. We are truly 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,” says Richard Errington, CEO, West HQ.
The book may have been released 75 years ago, but Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s magical classic remains one of the best-selling publications of all time. The international masterpiece has sold an incredible 200 million copies in 250 languages to become the second most translated book in modern history. The classic story loved by generations now comes to life as an innovative theatre spectacular live on stage.
The Little Prince explores the themes of loneliness, friendship, love, human selfishness and loss as the little prince travels the universe gaining wisdom. Despite being styled as a children’s book, The Little Prince has been praised for its observations about life, adults and human nature and critique of different elements of society.
This grand-scale performance brings to life the tale of an aviator lost in the desert who meets The Little Prince who has flown from one planet to another meeting compelling characters in a vivid dreamlike universe of dance, costumes, music, acrobatics, and ground-breaking video mapping technology that immerses audiences in an extraordinary adventure.
Tickets are on sale now at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre website and start at $89.
