The Peasant Prince – the true story of Mao’s Last Dancer
Li Cunxin’s iconic autobiography Mao’s Last Dancer was first published as a children’s picture book, The Peasant Prince. Monkey Baa is honoured to be adapting this story onto the stage.
Li, a 10-year old peasant boy, is plucked from his village in rural China and sent to a ballet academy in the big city. He leaves everything and everyone he knows, including his beloved parents. Over years of gruelling training and determination, this boy transforms from an impoverished peasant to a giant of the international dance scene. Li’s courage, resilience and unwavering hope for a better life makes The Peasant Prince a story to ignite our own aspirations to be the best person we can be.
You have your secret dreams. Follow them. Make them come true.
From The Peasant Prince by Li Cunxin
Audiences will be captivated by this inspiring story. Definitely not to be missed!
