Free Children's Opera - 3 Little Pigs

10/14/2009 12:03:00 AM
I downloaded the Kindle application on my iphone the other day. Apple gets enough of my money so I only download apps that are free. After downloading it, I looked for all the free books that were available. The first one that I came across was a book of fairy tales. When's the last time you read the original story of Aladdin rather than just watch the Disney version?

For those of you that are parents, maybe you've read the Three Little Pigs more recently than I have, but why read it to your kids when someone else will sing it to them for you? For Free!

The Boston Conservatory Opera presents FREE children’s performances of The Three Little Pigs, an operatic version of the classic tale of the same name. The opera, based on an adaptation by John Davies with music by Mozart, will be performed Saturday, Oct. 17 at noon and 2 p.m. at The Boston Conservatory’s Seully Hall, 8 The Fenway, 4th floor, Boston. Admission is FREE and reservations are not required. For more information call (617) 912-9240.

The 45-minute show is geared toward children in grades K–6. Kirsten Z. Cairns, director of opera studies at The Boston Conservatory, directs. Brian Moll will play piano. All performers are students pursuing professional training at The Boston Conservatory.

All I remember is the part about huffing and puffing and blowing houses down. Anyone remember the moral of the story? Was it to build a house of brick rather than straw? I forget.
