THE LITTLE PRINCE – BALLET X
Based on Antoine de Saint-Exupery's story of The Little Prince the ballet explores themes of love, friendship, life and death as a Pilot crashes into the dessert and is taken on a journey of personal discovery on his way to survival by The Little Prince.
One would hope that there is an eventual recording of composer Peter Salem’s original music for this ballet. Salem performs the score at the back of the stage with an array of acoustic and electronic keyboard instruments. From electric violin and harpsichord and banjo, world folk themes and synth drives give way to mystic sound-fields.
