PRINCE OF THE PAGODAS is a ballet by Benjamin Britten and John Cranko. The story deals with Princess Belle Rose's journey to the land of Pagodas after King Learish complications with her father and her evil sister. There she meets the Prince of the Pagodas, first a Salamander, at closer look a presentable young man, takes him home, where they free her father from her sister's imprisonment and live happily ever after. We decided to keep a modern sense of fairy tale in both stage and costume, refering to late medieval armour, early renaissance painting and asian influences, as Britten's music is partly inspired by Balinese gamellan.
