Description

Saturday, April 27, 11am and 1pm (relaxed performance)

Three little pigs. One big, bad wolf. Three exciting outcomes. Michael Ching’s delightful “remix” of the classic folktale about three friends who work together in the face of adversity. Fort Worth Opera’s Children’s Opera Theatre presents two performances of Michael Ching’s opera Three Pigs Remix for the community at the R4 Foundation gym (r4foundation.org). The singers are soprano Anne Wright, mezzo-soprano Heather Weirich, tenor Myles Garver, and baritone Erik Earl Larson.

Remix One features an inspirational message of collaboration. Remix Two flips the story on its head and teaches students that structure and order are better than chaos. Remix Three advises students to “read smart,” “think smart,” share with others, and take care of one another when times get rough. Three Pigs Remix is the perfect introduction to opera and reading for children and their families.

RSVPs required for both events. For more information, call 817/288-1207 or email sheran@fwopera.org.
