Tori Amos' musical THE LIGHT PRINCESS, which was previously postponed, will open at the National’s Lyttelton Theatre in October.
THE LIGHT PRINCESS is a musical adaptation of George MacDonald's 19th century Scottish fairy tale of the same name. A young princess is cursed by her spiteful aunt, but could the love of a young price one day break the spell? Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Port) will direct, with music and lyrics by Amos, and a book and lyrics by Samuel Adamson. The cast will include the Olivier award-winning Clive Rowe (Guys and Dolls, Open Air Theatre’s Twelfth Night, The Ladykillers, and Kiss Me, Kate at the Old Vic) and Rosalie Craig (Ragtime).
Tori Amos originally served as the lead singer of 1980s synthpop group Y Kant Tori Read, but is most widely known for her career as a solo singer-songwriter in the early 1990s. One of the few alternative rock performers to use a piano as her primary instrument, her charting singles include "Crucify", "Silent All These Years", "God", "Cornflake Girl", "Caught a Lite Sneeze", "Professional Widow", "Spark", "1000 Oceans" and "A Sorta Fairytale".
