Oscar Wilde - Tibor Zalán

The Happy Prince

“…and so, the Lord’s angels took the two most important things from Earth to the Heavens above: the dead body of the little Swallow, and the broken lead heart. Although the Happy Prince left the column for good, a small child had recovered, a playwright had written his play, and the little match girl had not gone home empty handed. It is almost as if it were Christmas.”

The play adapted from Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince debuted in 1997 and the next year it won the Unima Award.
