Manitoba Underground Opera: The Three Little Pigs
July 25 - August 23
Are you afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
A retelling of the well-known fairy tale incorporating music written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. While brother pigs Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off to make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina, goes to the library to read up on “huff-proof, puff-proof” home construction. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys’ flimsy homes, they run to their sister’s sturdy new brick house quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all. Both opera lovers and opera newbies will delight in this family friendly show, for children ages 5-12. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend.
