For this commission, the composer Michaël Levinas has chosen the mythical text by Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince, a meditation on friendship, loyalty and time. Stage director Lilo Baur brings out the best of her childlike spirit and decorator Julian Crouch acts as “master of illusions” with an enigmatic and poetic video-scenography and costumes.
