The Little Prince, Rachel Portman's 2003 opera based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's beloved book, opened at New York City Opera on November 12.

The production was created by Francesca Zambello, who staged the opera for its world premiere in Houston and later filmed it for the BBC; Sarah Meyers is the stage director. Sets and costumes are by Maria Bjørnson. Lighting is by Rick Fisher.

The libretto is by Nicholas Wright.
