Tickets Now On Sale For Amos's THE LIGHT PRINCESSTickets are now on sale for the page-to-stage adaptation of the classic fairy tale THE LIGHT PRINCESS, coming after relatively recent news of the long-gestating musical's highly anticipated bow in October at the Lyttelton Theatre in the West End.

THE LIGHT PRINCESS was penned by idiosyncratic recording artist Tori Amos alongside playwright Samuel Adamson and it appears as though Amos has inspired the look of the lady on the poster, as well - particularly given the unmistakable crimson locks.

Acclaimed War Horse director Marianne Elliot is set to direct the premiere of THE LIGHT PRINCESS and Rosalie Craig and Clive Rowe lead the accomplished cast in a production carrying the banner of the acclaimed National Theatre.

The official synopsis of THE LIGHT PRINCESS is as follows: "Once, in opposing kingdoms lived a princess and a prince who had lost their mothers. Althea, unable to cry, became light with grief and floated, and so was locked away. Digby became so heavy-hearted that he could never smile, and so was trained as a warrior. One day, he declares war. Althea is forced out of hiding and down to ground but, in defiance of her father, she escapes, only to encounter the solemn prince on contested land. Beside a lake the warring heirs begin a passionate and illicit affair. But for Althea to find real love, she must first confront the world's darkness and face her own deepest fears."

The show is being billed as a "spectacular coming-of-age story. A dark fairy tale about grief, rebellion and the power of love."

The National Theatre production of THE LITTLE PRINCESS begins previews at the Lyttelton Theatre on September 25, with an October opening currently being set.
