Best-selling children's book The Peasant Prince comes to life with music by Katy Abbott, storytelling and big-screen projections. Li Cunxin's inspirational tale - based on his autobiography, Mao's Last Dancer - traces the journey of a young boy from rural China who, against all odds, becomes one of the most famous dancers in the world. The story unfolds with disarming simplicity and charm, with humour and compassion.
