The North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is thrilled to announce the NEMPAC Opera Project’s 2019 MainStage Production. This year, our new Artistic Director, Alexandra Dietrich, has selected Rachel Portman’s lush setting of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince”, a beloved French children’s novel to multiple generations of readers since its publication in 1943. The story reminds audiences of all ages that the things that matter in life can only be seen with our hearts, and not with our eyes. This season will mark the first time that NEMPAC Opera Project has produced an opera by a female composer, Rachel Portman. Her opera, “The Little Prince”, debuted at Houston Grand Opera in 2003, and was last seen in Boston in 2005 at Boston Lyric Opera. This opera will also feature heavily young singers from the NEMPAC community in collaboration with the young singers of VOICES Boston as the ever-present onstage chorus of stars, as well as a young singer in the titular role of the Little Prince. The opera will be performed in English.
Our 2019 Production of the NEMPAC Opera Project The Little Prince would not be possible without the support and generosity of sponsors at different levels:
Co-Presenting Sponsor $5,000+
