Little Red Riding Hood, the most performed children’s opera in the world, is an exciting introductory opera for young audiences and a natural vehicle for exploration of literature, language and the arts. The 45-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.
