The Little Prince in the Montréal Grand Ballet

Didy Veldman was in her early twenties when she first read The Little Prince. Like many adults, she was surprised by the existential questions raised by what she presumed was a simple children’s story. After several re-readings, she felt the urge to
translate its poetry and purity into movement. “I wanted to keep certain narrative elements,” she explains, “but not be overly literal. The Little Prince is a story about rediscovery. I would like to focus on aspects of human behaviour and life choices, to question them in the same spirit of the book. But this is only the starting point. Who knows where it will all lead?”
