Lights! Camera! Action! Everyone’s favourite fairy tale is heading to the small screen in Vic Opera’s new family production.
Young princess or hopeful TV star? The Princess and the Pea is transported to a modern day television studio on the set of a hit show. Arriving for her first day of filming, our quirky “Princess” must prove herself to her famous colleagues. Filled with stacks of colour, beautiful singing and a live orchestra, this story will teach you not to judge a book by its cover.
Composer Ernst Toch’s musical rendition of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea receives its Australian premiere. With a cast of opera’s brightest talent, Libby Hill returns to direct this fun family production following Hansel and Gretel, Alice’s Adventures in Operaland and Cinderella.
