Three Little Birds Productions presents:
The Three Little Pigs by John Davies
Thank you for your interest in the upcoming production of The Three Little Pigs. We are excited to share the wonders of classical music and theatre with you and your students. We invite you and your students to join our adventure in the magical world of opera, where they can be involved in the storytelling by helping our heroes reach their goals. Immerse yourselves in an environment created to entertain, encourage creativity, and renew the thrill of learning something new. Laugh, learn, and enjoy the magic of opening a book.
An operatic version of the story of The Three Little Pigs based on scenes from operas by W. A. Mozart. While brother pigs Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off to make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina, goes to the library to read up on “huff-proof, puff-proof” home construction. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys’ flimsy homes, they run to their sister’s sturdy new brick house quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all.
