Directed by Paul Foster, the concert takes place at Cadogan Hall on Sunday 1st July 2018.
Based on the Scottish fairy tale by George MacDonald, The Light Princess tells the story of a princess afflicted by a constant weightlessness, unable to get her feet on the ground, both literally and metaphorically, until she finds a love that brings her down to earth.
Rosalie Craig said today, “It’s so wonderful to have the opportunity to revisit this incredible piece 5 years on. It is hugely special to me and it will be a joy to hear it and sing it again after all this time.”
Samuel Adamson commented, “I’m thrilled that The Light Princess is going to float again this July in a concert produced by Club 11 London and Alex Parker Theatre Company. I can’t wait to hear the incomparable Rosalie Craig sing the role of the princess again – and who better to be her prince than Hadley Fraser?”
