Le Petit Prince Ballet Premieres in Toronto

If you don’t recall the story of The Little Prince from childhood, or Le Petit Prince by origin, you’ve likely become familiar with the title this year. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s charming story about a stranded aviator who encounters a little prince in the dessert, has experienced a renaissance of sorts – with the release of an animated movie, and now the world premiere of a full length ballet.

To top it off, the ballet has been choreographed by Toronto based principal dancer Guillaume Côté for the National Ballet of Canada. I, for one, am bursting with pride! With original choreography, costumes (Michael Levine), and music (Kevin Lau), this ballet will dazzle over 18,000 eager attendees, over nine sold-out performances.  If you’re lucky, you may still score “standing room” tickets for $12 a piece prior to every performance! And I highly recommend you try, as it will likely be a few seasons before the production returns to the stage!

However, if you miss-out on Le Petit Prince, don’t fret – there’s plenty of opportunity to buy tickets for the National Ballet’s 2016/17 season, which boasts more acclaim-worthy productions, such as the world premiere of Pinocchio, and the classic Swan Lake.

By the Numbers

18,639 seated attendees over 9 performances

$2 million in support given by Ms. Gattuso and Mr. Slaight (that’s the single largest gift for a new production in the company’s history!)

20 Wild Bird costumes, with carbon fibre wing structures spanning 3 meters wide for the men, and 2.5 meters for the women

Over 200 shards of “mirror” cover the bodice + tutu of the Vain Woman

Yet another talented collaborator to this whimsical world premiere, is Barbara Cole, underwater photographer and Toronto resident. You’ll find her gravity defying images of dancers suspended in space gracing billboards, brochures, and transit ads the city over. If you’re curious about the making-of these ethereal images, check out the video below!
