The Little Prince travels to Washington

The Washington National Opera’s production of Rachel Portman’s “The Little Prince,” which opened at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater on Christmas and ran for five performances, was a children’s opera indeed. An adaptation of Francesca Zambello’s original production for the 2003 world premiere in Houston, it involved an enchanting children’s chorus, wielding lanterns and paper cranes and singing lustily; as well, of course, as the protagonist, soundly sung by Henry Wager. It marked the third year of WNO’s new holiday tradition, and, because it played in a small theater, its run sold out even before it opened!
