Behind the walls of beautiful palaces, where the living is easy and the dancing and drinking never end, lies a very different world. It might not be pretty, but it’s certainly real. In the middle of that world stands the beautiful golden statute of a prince, with gemstones instead of eyes. Every day, the Prince looks down on the misery of people he never met when he was alive. Meanwhile, winter approaches and the swallows fly south, all except for one, whose sympathetic heart is stronger than the desire for warm, exotic lands. But what about the Prince’s heart of lead? Can it resound with love and compassion? This spectacular production was created in collaboration with the Forman Brothers Theatre.
