Jack and the Beanstalk
- January 26, 2013 12:30 pm
This kiddo-friendly opera (it's short, fun, and sung in English) recounts the familiar story of young Jack, a young man charged by his mother with taking a cow to the market to sell. On his way there, he meets a old man who trades him "magic beans" in exchange for the cow. His mother, naturally, isn't thrilled, and flings the beans out the window. Overnight, the beans grow into a giant beanstalk, which takes Jack to the home of a wealthy, angry giant. It's all set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan of "Gilbert and Sullivan" fame.
