Notes & Reviews:

'The Wooden Prince' is a fairy tale ballet with an original story by Bartok’s literary acquaintance Bela Balazs, who had also written the libretto to 'Bluebeard’s Castle'. Though outwardly sunny in its subject matter, 'The Wooden Prince' has a mystical side that may explain Bartok’s attraction to the story. The ballet’s opening pages have often been compared to the opening of Wagner’s 'Das Rheingold', and the majestic heart of the score lies in the glorious music Bartok wrote to accompany the prince’s apotheosis.
