“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye”
In the middle of the Sahara Desert, a stranded aviator meets the Little Prince, a young boy from a small, faraway asteroid, and a dreamlike journey unfolds across a universe. A rose, a sheep, and an array of unusual adults on their own small planets spark wonder in Artistic Director Courtney Sale’s SCT directorial debut. Adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, this treasured tale reminds us of the power of innocence and boundless love.
