An Opera for the Little Prince

The genius composer Michaël Levinas interprets the timeless tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

« I wrote for children and adults of all cultures, an opera, who sings the text and the message of The Little Prince. The theatrical myth of the Little Prince has an almost Mozartian dimension. It expresses both the marvelous grace, but also the ultimate fragility and severity in front of the ruthless of the human reality : that is its paradoxical strength. « 

Michaël Levinas
