About the album

I have always perceived music in the text of the Little Prince, this address to children, which expresses life’s graceful and transient state. Hence my positive reply to Eric Vigié, director of the Lausanne Opera, who suggested adapting the book to a lyrical work. There are already operas based on the Little Prince in Russian, English, German, but strangely enough, none in French. What a responsibility! A unique adventure in a composer’s life! Writing an opera based on a work that is anchored in collective memory forced me to create a kind of theatricality that would be immediately perceivable and aimed at the widest audience, thus sparking off an exceptional and important bond between the public and the stage. It is also in that respect that the project of Le Petit Prince made sense to me, from an aesthetic point of view.
