Tori is not presently on tour.
After development and workshops and delays and more workshops, The National Theatre announced, during their January 30th press conference about plans for the coming year, that The Light Princess musical, created by Samuel Adamson and Tori and directed by Marianne Elliot, will finally be opening in October 2013!
The press release (Word doc) is short on specifics but confirms the title and the stars: Rosalie Craig and Clive Rowe.
So while the exact details and date and tickets are understandably yet to be sorted out, it is great to hear that this production will see the light of day.
Soon as there is word of when the musical will open and information about ticket availability, we’ll pass the word along.
Concrete details about the forthcoming The Light Princess musical are still elusive but, as The Stage reported today, it’s still firmly on The National Theatre’s radar for 2013.
The Stage indicates being told by a theatre spokesman that a production slot later next year is still being settled upon and that additional details and dates will be coming in the new year. The Stage also adds that Marianne Elliott, as has been previously reported, is still directing the performance.
So, nothing really new about the musical except an indication of when we should expect to hear about The National’s plans for the production.
This year’s campaign includes a celebrity auction featuring a plethora of auction items and experiences donated by musicians, athletes, and other personalityes that you can bid on at CharityBuzz, including a piano bench signed by Tori Amos.
The auction continues until Thursday, December 13th at 4:20PM Eastern so if you’d like to add this to your home furnishings — and support a great cause in the process — you’ve got a few days to consider doing so!
And even if you don’t want to bid on the bench, consider making a donation to help out this worthy effort.
Back in August, we reported that DJ and remixer Peter Rauhofer had announced he was remixing the Gold dust version of “Flavor.”
Since then, he’s indicated that Tori likes the three remixes he’s made of the song and that he’ll be premiering it, along with several other new remixes, during the Work! Freakshow Halloween party he’ll be deejaying at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
If you’re not in and around NYC or the club scene is not your thing, the remix should be available in the coming weeks.
Tori is the latest addition to AfterElton.com’s Gay Icon Nominee series, a relatively new feature of the site where they propose less known celebrities and pop culture figures to join the ranks of gay icons such as Madonna and Betty Davis.
Louis Virtel’s column, posted today, outlines five good reasons why Tori qualifies, ranging from her gay-friendly stance in the context of how she is raising her daughter to her Madonna covers.
Can’t say that we disagree with any of them though we know there are more…and pretty much think Tori already is a gay icon.
Tori accepted the ECHO Klassik award she won for Night of Hunters at an awards ceremony tonight at the Konzerthaus in Berlin.
She was one of three artists to receive a Klassik-Ohne-Grenzen (Classical Without Borders) prize.
While she did not perform at the awards ceremony, she did present an ECHO Klassik “Nachwuchskünstlerin” (Up and Coming Artist) award to the outstanding pianist Khatia Buniatishvili for her Franz Liszt collection released last year.
The awards ceremony was broadcast on ZDF and should be archived on ZDF.de soon.
Tori was interviewed on the red carpet before the ceremony by ECHO Klassik’s Axel Brüggemann and they’ve shared a clip of it on YouTube:
Don’t forget: Tori will be one of the guests on ZDF’s Morgenmagazin morning television program. The show airs from 5:30 to 9:00 AM CEST but Klassik Akzente reports that she’ll be on during the last hour of the program.
Update Thanks to llliquidDiamonds, you can watch the portion of the ceremony where Tori receives her award on YouTube:
And when she introduces the Upcoming Artist award to Khatia Buniatishvili:
This past Saturday was designer Bernard Chandran’s catwalk show for London Fashion Week and, having recently worn fashions designed by him in the video for “Flavor,” Tori was in attendance. Sitting right in the front row with daughter Natashya, she was hard to miss and it wasn’t long before several photos of them watching the show were making the rounds on the Internet.
Many thanks to @OggyYardanov, Nora Nona, and Paula Harrowing for sharing these shots!
Additionally, 55Factory chatted with Bernard Chandran, Lyne Renee and Tori following the show and threw the clips up on YouTube. “Tory” is the first person in the interview.
While chatting with OK! Magazine (warning: there is an auto-playing video at that page), Rosalie Craig, one of the leads in the stage production of Finding Neverland, dropped a rather juicy tidbit about the long-delayed production of The Light Princess that Tori has written the music for:
What are you up to after Finding Neverland?
Rosalie: Next year I’ll be starring in a huge musical at the National Theatre, co-written by Tori Amos and based on an 18th-century fairy tale called The Light Princess.
That’s my character, and she doesn’t have any gravity!
They’ve been developing it for years.
Last we heard, the production of The Light Princess, though delayed, was still on. Given this news, it now seems that the project will come to fruition in 2013…and it’s nice to know at least a lead actor has been selected. Definitely something to look forward to next year!

We here at Undented are physically in the United States and temporally towards the back-side of the International Date Line so it’s still August 21st as this article was written. However, most of the rest of the world — from Oceania to New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe — have already turned their daytimers over to August 22nd, so we feel safe in wishing the happiest of birthdays to Tori — even if we are jumping the gun a few hours here in the New World!
And, by the way, if you’re still in the mood this Thursday and looking for a suitable way to continue celebrating, we suggest tuning your radio or your media player to WBWC as Tori will be the only artist they play all day for the penultimate installment of their Summer Marathon Series series. Tune in at 7:00 AM EDT at 88.3 FM in the Cleveland, Ohio area or their livestream and you’ll hear nothing but Tori’s music all day long. Thanks to Danielle C. for the tip!
