According to reports, Tori Amos' musical, The Light Princess, which was previously postponed and set to play the Lyttelton Theatre this year, will now play The National Theatre at the end of 2013.
The Ligt Princess is a musical adaptation of the George MacDonald fairy tale of the same name. Marianne Elliott will direct. It was previously scheduled to debut in spring 2012 but was later postponed.
Tori Amos originally served as the lead singer of 1980s synthpop group Y Kant Tori Read, and as a solo artist was at the forefront of a number of female singer-songwriters in the early 1990s. She was also noteworthy early in her solo career as one of the few alternative rock performers to use a piano as her primary instrument. Some of her charting singles include "Crucify", "Silent All These Years", "God", "Cornflake Girl", "Caught a Lite Sneeze", "Professional Widow", "Spark", "1000 Oceans", and "A Sorta Fairytale", her most commercially successful single in the U.S. to date.
