On stage

The first stage adaptation of The Little Prince dates back to 1963, and was directed by Raymond Jérôme at the Théâtre des Mathurins in Paris. Since then, there have been literally hundreds of stage adaptations of the book, for everything from school plays to amateur dramatics and professional theatre companies.

Some of the adaptations have run for years while other French productions have travelled as far as Japan, the Americas the Arab world and Africa. To mark the 60th anniversary of the French edition, Virgil Tanase staged a new adaptation at the Théâtre Michel in Paris, which is still playing both in France and abroad.

From musicals (like the one staged in 2001 in Paris by Richard Cocciante, or those produced in Korea, Hong Kong and the USA), to operas (The Little Prince by Rachel Portman, Der Kleine Prinz by Nikolaus Schapfl) and ballets (Le Petit Prince, choreography by Katarina Stojkov-Slijepcevic to a score composed by Aleksandra Ðokic), The Little Prince has delighted audiences on every continent.
