One-Act Touring Opera: Little Red Riding Hood

Based on the classic children’s story, Little Red Riding Hood features costumed singers and a professional pianist and lasts approximately 50-55 minutes. The opera 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.

Little Red Riding Hood costs $500 for one performance or $850 for two, back-to-back performances and includes a study guide, making it perfect for school assemblies.
