The last week of October 2022 marks exactly 25 years since Moving Poets opened its first public show for Halloween in 1997: Dracula. To celebrate the occasion we present the world premier of our original production of “The Little Prince”.
This multi media concert performance ride to strange planets and the desert is inspired by the French pilot & author “Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s” work and his mysterious disappearance during an air battle between allied and German forces in the second world war.
Originally prohibited in much of Europe as subversive literature, today “The Little Prince” is one of the world’s most known books with over 300 translations. From the perspective of our inner child, it investigates with great charm and depth friendship, loss, love, conflict, purpose, loneliness and having to grow old – in a world run by adults that always need to have everything explained.
Moving Poets original adaptation follows our unique format of highly creative, cross-cultural musical theatre. It is created and performed in Charlotte and Berlin in collaboration with over 30 local, national and international musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists, composers and writers. The performances are accompanied by “The Little Prince - pictures” - an exhibition in the Booth lobby of art work by Charlotte, Berlin and international visual artists.
The production is made possible with the support of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, the Arts & Science Council, the North Carolina Arts Council, the Charlotte Ballet, the Charlotte Ballet Academy and our friends and supporters.
