The Little Prince

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 desert 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.

Lopez Ochoa’s vision and the dancers’ captivating performances combined with innovative set design and Peter Salem’s original score make me eager for more full-length works from both this choreographer and BalletX’s stellar company.
