Description: An unusual promise bonds a Princess to a frog and leads to a moving transformation. This classic account of perseverance, courage, and faith from the Brothers Grimm is illuminated with storytelling, movement, and an extensive harp score. Set for 3 mimes, narrator, and pedal harp; the harpist may also play the narrator. The original unpublished version is a ballet, set for horn, harp, viola, and piano. "What a pleasant and refreshing change to see a children’s show not steeped elbow deep in patronizing Panto over-enthusiasm…The Frog Prince’ is a tale regaled by a harp plucking narrator, wonderfully creating moods and atmosphere... Silent flowing movement from the players allows a magical setting to blossom on stage, while an audience, comprising far more three-year-olds than adults, sits mesmerized… A very welcome alternative to conventional children’s theatre.”--Three Weeks
