The Light Princess

A new fairytale musical written by Tori Amos, The Light Princess premieres at the National Theatre's Lyttelton stage on 9th October 2013, with previews from 25th September. Marianne Elliott, whose previous National Theatre credits include War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, directs the production which features music and lyrics by Amos and book and lyrics by Samuel Adamson. The cast of this coming-of-age story stars Rosalie Craig as Althea, the princess, who plays opposite Nick Hendrix as Digby, a neighbouring Prince, and includes Clive Rowe who recently starred in The Hothouse at Trafalgar Transformed. This "dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love" follows the lives of a princess and prince who have both lost their mothers. In the midst of war, the pair meet on contested land and start an illicit affair but the princess must still confront the darkness and her fears.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
