“THE LITTLE PRINCE”
— NEMPAC Opera Project 2019 Production*
June 20 & 22, June 2019 at 7:30 pm
Location: Faneuil Hall’s The Great Hall, Boston
Dr. Tiffany Chang | CONDUCTOR
Alexandra Dietrich | STAGE DIRECTOR
This year, our new Artistic Director, Alexandra Dietrich, has selected Rachel Portman’s lush setting of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince”, a beloved French children’s novel to multiple generations of readers since its publication in 1943. The story reminds audiences of all ages that the things that matter in life can only be seen with our hearts, and not with our eyes.
This opera will feature heavily young singers from the NEMPAC community as the ever present onstage chorus of stars, as well as a young treble singer in the lead role of the Little Prince. This production will be staged at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall on June 20th and 22nd, 2019 and will be conducted by Tiffany Chang.
Entering its 8th performance season, the project will present a fully staged opera accompanied by orchestra. In an effort to challenge what theatre space ‘has to be’, the project will return to non-traditional performance spaces including a full performance at Faneuil Hall’s Great Hall and a sneak peek outdoor performance at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park.
