The Light Princess National Theatre

The Light Princess
The National Theatre 2013

Directed by Marianne Elliot, written by Samuel Adamson
with music by Tori Amos

“It was wonderful to work with such exciting original music by Tori Amos to create a fairy tale world for Marianne. The main challenge was how to float a Princess in air and water throughout the musical in a magical way. Another was to being in charge of the visual language and facilitating a working process where animation, scenery, props, puppetry and illusion fit together and developed in the rehearsal room with the staging and music.”

“The design by Rae Smith is gorgeous, packed with witty touches that include amorous frogs and a cheeky pink mouse. There’s some swoon-inducing puppetry, too.”
