Description:

Little Red Riding Hood, the most performed children’s opera in the world, is a superb introductory opera for young audiences and a natural vehicle for exploration of literature, language and the arts. The 50-minute opera, sung in English, was written in 1963 by prolific children’s opera composer Seymour Barab.

In the course of the familiar story, Little Red learns valuable lessons about the dangers of straying from the path, value of family relationships, and the power of words. Children of all ages will enjoy the informal setting where kids can sit right up close to the action.
