Little Red Riding Hood



Little Red Riding Hood by Seymour Barab, a fully-staged and costumed touring opera, is designed for grades PK- 6 schoolchildren and also contains humor that parents and teachers will appreciate. The Wolf, the Woodsman, Mother and Grandmother are hilarious re-creations of the classic storybook characters. The title character is wise beyond her years and has a LOT of surprises in store for the not-so-wily wolf.

 This 44 minute piece was composed for elementary students and artists are available for a live question and answer session immediately following the performance.  The “safety first” aspect of the storyline, which emphasizes that children should not speak to strangers, is instructive and valuable - especially for younger elementary grades - yet it does not detract from the comedy and musical variety!

Available for booking September 2019 through May 2020.

About MetroPelican Opera

MetroPelican Opera, the educational/outreach "wing" of the New Orleans Opera Association, was founded in 1988 by Arthur Cosenza, the General and Artistic Director of the company. He chose "Metro" to represent the 7-parish population base of greater New Orleans, and "Pelican" for the state bird. MetroPelican has subsequently toured throughout Louisiana, as well as crossing state borders into Mississippi and Texas, and continues to offer quality experiences to schools, libraries, and community centers. Artists are drawn from the wealth of talented performers based in the Crescent City. MetroPelican has created 6 new performance programs since 1994, and 3 of these have continued to tour the city and state. In the year 2000 MetroPelican received Gambit Magazine's "Tribute to the Classical Arts" Education Award for outstanding achievement.
