Hugh Grant to narrate The Little Prince at the Abu Dhabi Festival


Afficher l'image d'origine

Hugh Grant will make a stage appearance in Abu Dhabi.

The famed British actor has been announced as a last-minute addition to the regional premiere of The Little Prince.

The 55-year-old will be the “live narrator », tasked with telling the classic tale, in a fresh musical adaptation by Nick Lloyd Webber and James D Reid.

Part of the continuing Abu Dhabi Festival, the family performance is an Arab World premiere, hosted at Emirates Palace on April 21 and 22.

The Little Prince is the debut musical from Lloyd Webber, the son of celebrated impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber. Co-written with creative partner James D Reid, the production received its debut in Belfast in 2011.

However in a fresh spin for the emirates, Grant will bring the French literary classic to life. First published in 1943, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s much-loved novella has been translated into 230 languages and still sells one million copies a year.

The book tells the story of a pilot who crashes in the desert and meets a young boy from another planet, before setting off on a voyage into space.

Grant will narrate the story alongside an orchestra of 40 players and 13 principal singers and ensemble, under the baton of acclaimed music director Simon Lee.

In a joint statement, Lloyd Webber and Reid said: “We’re delighted to welcome Hugh on board for the concert performances of The Little Princeat the Abu Dhabi Festival 2016 and are looking forward to working with him in April. »

Before both performances the writers will host a preconcert talk, free to ticket holders, from 7pm in Emirates Palace Conference Lounge Centre.

Golden Globe-winner Grant is much-loved for his key roles in audience-pleasers such as the romantic comedies Four Weddings and a Funeral,Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary and Love Actually.

The Abu Dhabi Festival runs throughout April, and also welcomes star-studded performances from Chinese pianist Lang Lang, Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta, French singers Natalie Dessay and Laurent Naouri. For more information and tickets, from Dh125, see www.abudhabifestival.ae

The Little Prince great journey !


france 2016 little prince logoSMALL

The Monnaie de Paris has launched (21st March) a new numismatic series chronicling the travels of France’s favoritePetit Prince, based on the novella by Antoine de Saint Exupéry (1900 – 1944). The release of this most recent series of “The Little Prince” coins coincides with the 70th anniversary of the story’s publication in France in 1946.

Antoine de Saint Exupéry was a French poet and aviator who made his first flight in 1912, marking the beginning of his passion for aviation. He studied architecture until his French Air Force service began in 1921 in Strasbourg. A 1923 plane accident in Le Bourget demobilized him, and it was at this time that his writing career began.

In 1931, he published his second book, Vol de nuit. From 1932 on he focused on writing and journalism, occasionally reporting on major events, while also remaining a test pilot and raid pilot. In 1939, he served as a captain in the French Air Force and was recruited for service in an air reconnaissance squadron. During the Armistice, he left France bound for New York with the aim of enlisting or convincing the Americans to enter World War II. He wrote Le Petit Prince in New York City during this period.

In April 1943, Saint Exupéry returned to duty in aviation and was stationed in Tunisia. In the spring of 1944, he joined a unit in charge of photographic reconnaissance in preparation for the Allied landings in the south of France. Sadly, Saint Exupéry did not see the liberation of his country, having died after crashing his plane at sea on July 31, 1944. The plane was not found until 2000.

Le Petit Prince was originally published on April 6, 1943 in the United States and has sold more than 150 million copies around the world. It has been translated into over 270 languages, and has been described as a book for children written for grown-ups, as it can be read on many different levels to provide pleasure and food for thought for readers of all ages.

The fanciful story begins when the narrator, who is an aviator, crashes with his aeroplane in the middle of the Sahara desert. While he is trying to repair his aeroplane, a little boy — the Little Prince — appears and asks him to draw a sheep. The author learns that the Little Prince comes from asteroid B-612, where he has left behind three volcanoes and a rose.

The little Prince has had extensive travels before reaching earth, having visited other planets and met some very odd people, such as a king, a conceited man, a drunkard, a lamplighter, and a geographer. Since arriving on earth, he has communicated with a fox who has taught him “that to know someone or something, you must tame them, and that makes them unique” further teaching that “what is essential is invisible to the eye,” according to the fox.

The coins, which are sold as face value pieces, range from 10-euro silver pieces to 250-euro gold issues, with the first series consisting of twelve 10-euro coins, four 50 euro silver pieces (with two colorized versions of the 50-euro coins), and one gold coin. The second series, available later in 2016, includes the same numbers and varieties.

The Little Prince and its author were highlighted on France’s last legacy franc-denominated bank note series. The 50-franc note originally issued in 1997 featured a portrait of Saint-Exupéry on the obverse, along with a rendition of the Little Prince. The story has been made into a feature length anime-film that was released last year and has served as the inspiration for a “Petit Prince” theme park of 23 hectares located in Alsace.

For the 2016 The Beautiful Journey of the Little Prince series, an exclusive box has been developed to preserve and organize the coins. Its format is inspired from the original editions of the book, and from the travel notebooks that are used by the greatest explorers. A navy blue elastic band can be used to keep the box closed and includes a clasp engraved with the logo of the Monnaie de Paris.
