Seagle Music Colony: “Little Red’s Most Unusual Day” | Rossini, Offenbach, Davies

Friday, July 21st 2017 at 10:00 am

The Seagle Music Colony, the oldest summer singer training program in the country, was founded in 1915 by world renowned baritone Oscar Seagle. Celebrating its 102nd season in summer 2017, Seagle Music Colony continues to be the premier opera and musical theatre producing organization in New York’s Adirondack region.

This year, the children’s opera that the Seagle Music Colony will tour throughout the Adirondacks is John Davies‘ take on the traditional Little Red Riding Hood fairy-tale. Little Red’s Most Unusual Day includes Dudley the forest ranger and a man-crazy grandma who both take on the big bad wolf. Here’s the synopsis:

Forest Ranger Dudley is too shy to ask Little Red’s mom, the widow Hood, to the Forest Ranger Ball. For that reason he leaves a written invitation in a basket of flowers outside Little Red’s house. Unfortunately for Dudley, the basket is delivered to Granny. Granny simply loves men, especially men in uniform. In the resulting confusion Dudley loses his pants, Granny kisses the Wolf, Mom gets impatient and Little Red gets in trouble. In fact, everyone experiences, in one way or another, a very, very unusual day.

Using music of Rossini and Offenbach, this 30-minute opera is fun from beginning to end for all ages.

The production is directed by Richard Kagey with music direction/piano accompaniment by Danny Zelibor.

  • Francesca Mehrotra as Little Red
