Prolific film composer Rachel Portman brings the enchanting tale of adventure, friendship and love to the stage in an adaptation of the much-beloved book “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
A prince befriends a pilot (Will Liverman) whose plane crashes, and they take the audience on a magical journey of discovery. Liverman, “a mellow voiced and charismatic baritone …” (The New York Times), and 2017 George London Award winner “is one of the most versatile singing artists performing today.” (Bachtrack) Oklahoma natives Kristee Haney (mezzo-soprano) and Christine Taylor Price (soprano) along with Jana McIntyre (soprano) round out the cast in the roles of The Fox, The Rose and The Water. Price, making her Tulsa Opera debut, began pursuing a career in opera after performing in the children’s chorus of “The Little Prince” in Tulsa in 2006.
Conductor Lina Gonzalez-Granados of Colombia was named one of El Mundo’s “Latino 30 Under 30.” She has been praised by The Boston Musical Intelligencer for her “geniality” and ability to create “lightning changes in tempo, meter, and effect.”
