True to the classic tale, three little pigs prepare to build their separate houses to withstand an impending visit by the hungry wolf. Only this time, the pigs are named for famous characters in Mozart operas (Despina, Cherubino, and Don Giovanni) and they sing their little hearts out as they debate the merits of straw, sticks, and brick as building materials. (Spoiler alert - Despina prevails because of a research trip to the library)

The English-language, 30-minute mini-opera is perfect for young attention spans, an introduction to how music can make a beloved story come alive - and with a message that reading solves all sorts of problems. The special performances are designed for audiences aged 3 and up.
