Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson present The Light Princess at the Lyttelton National Theatre. The production is likely to be a stand-out event even at the high profile location on South Bank as it not only brings audiences a new version of the classic Scottish fairytale, it also sees the American musician, Amos, team-up with the Australian playwright, Adamson. The results should be something to talk about for years to come and with a cast that includes Rosalie Craig, Nick Hendrix and Clive Rowe, plus a director in Marianne Elliot, it is likely to be a must-see event.
Amos and Adamson have penned both the lyrics and the book, with Amos also providing the music, and the result is a new musical version of The Light Princess, which tells the story of a prince and princess of two opposing kingdoms that find one another in the midst of war. The prince, Digby, is a motherless warrior and the princess, Althea, has been locked away following the death of her own mother.
Tori Amos is a well known musician who has released an array of albums since the 1990s following her stint as the lead singer of the band Y Kant Tori Read. Her solo work began with Little Earthquakes in 1992 and progressed to the likes of American Doll Posse and Night Of Hunters in the 21st century, with songs like Cornflake Girl, Crucify and A Sorta Fairytale among her best known work.
In a year that brings shows like Strange Interlude to the Lyttelton and Edward II to the Olivier, The Light Princess runs at the Lyttelton National Theatre from Wednesday 9th October 2013 (previews from Wednesday 25th September 2013).
