5000 roses

Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Studio Theatre

"The consistently brilliant Theatre du Pif has triumphed in reclaiming The Little Prince from the claws of pragmatic capitalism and striking at the mundaneness of the modern life in one blow.  5000 roses is like a breath of fresh air, managing to evoke as many affecting images and messages as the original text itself.  Those who have not read the book would be overwhelmed by the sentiments, while those who did would experience how shatteringly moving it is when brought to the stage."
Clarence Tsui, SCMP, 6 Dec 1999
 

 

5000 roses was inspired by the life and writings of the heroic aviator and prize-winning author Antoine de Saint-Exupery, whose best-known work is the enchanting fable, The Little Prince.

“The men where you live” said the prince, “raise 5000 roses in the same garden and they do not find in it what they are looking for.” Theatre du Pif's production mixes moments from Saint-Expurery's life, with the main story of The Little Prince whose interplanetary travels brings him to Earth where he learns finally from a fox, the secret of what is really important in life.
