Lyric Opera Express

Elementary school students sing and act in Little Red Riding Hood.

Participating classrooms are visited by professional singers who help the students prepare for their opera debuts. Little Red Riding Hood is a classic children’s fairy tale with a modern twist by Joseph and Paula Winans, with music by Mozart, Donizetti, Lehar, Bizet and Gilbert and Sullivan. Simple costumes are created, and the class of new opera stars and four Lyric Opera Express performers take the stage to perform for the rest of the school. Comprehensive educational materials, including a student activity packet, CD and DVD, are provided.
