North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) will introduce children from Charlestown and Newton that will be featured as the lead role in the Prince in the non-profit’s upcoming Opera Project 2019 Production of “The Little Prince” at the Great Hall at Faneuil Hall.
“The Little Prince” will also feature an exciting cast of professional artists from the Boston area and a large cast of all ages that will captivate the audience with this timeless story of the meaning of life and death and the threads of love that weaves both experiences into the quilted pattern of human experience.
Entering its eighth performance season, “The Little Prince” will be fully stage opera sung in English and continue the NEMPAC Opera Project’s initiative to stage children with professionals as in prior productions.
The opera will showcase a diverse group of young singers between the ages of 8 and 14 from Boston and surrounding neighborhoods, members of NEMPAC community and Voices Boston-at the on-stage chorus of stars.
The cast includes two young singers in the title role of “The Little Prince.”
Ten-year-old Linus Schafer Goulthorpe of Charlestown makes his debut performance as the Prince in the June 20 Opera.
Eleven-year-old Claire Cho of Newton will perform in her first opera as the Prince.
NEMPAC is a community music school and a professional performing arts center with a strong focus on serving the North End/Waterfront and surrounding neighborhoods of Boston by making quality music and arts programming assessable for all.
