Opera description from FBN Productions:
The Three Little Pigs uses the familiar children’s story as its source. The opera takes Despina and her brothers, Giovanni and Cherubino, through a typical family squabble. While they are arguing over the proper construction of a house, Despina proclaims they can find plans for a good house in the library. The boys think books are silly as they already know how to build snug little cottages.
Enter Wolfgang Bigbad, who pretends to be a fierce statue guarding the library. The story proceeds, with only Despina ready for the wolf - she has read in a book how to shrink bullies down to size. The moral of the story: "When you fear a thing that’s scary ... Just take your questions to the library."
See you at the opera!
