Little Red Riding Hood

Composer Seymour Barab

When Little Red Riding Hood goes to visit her Grandmother, she promises Mother that she w ill not stray from the path. But in the woods, she can't resist searching for delicious strawberries - only to find a hungry Wolf instead! When the Wolf meets her again at Grandmother's house, it's up to clever Little Red to save the day. Composer Seymour Barab's operatic take on the classic fairy tale features a comedic twist on the formerly "Big Bad" Wolf, and is a must-see for young audiences of all ages!
