Prelude Opera is excited to announce an upcoming production of a timeless storybook classic, Little Red Riding Hood, a children’s opera composed by Seymour Barab. The first American opera performed in China after the isolationist period has been enjoyed by young audiences since it was composed in 1962. Barab (1921-2014) was a Manhattan resident and has been deemed “the Rossini of our time.”
We received two grants for this production from the Lower Manhattan Community Council. They have graciously allowed us to postpone the performance to 2021. We are now working to finish our fundraising goals in order to live-stream a production and possibly hold an outdoor performance in a park in May 2021. Stay tuned for ways to support this production, including an art sale, T-shirt sale and tax-deductible donations.
