Le petit chaperon rouge
by Georges Aperghis, based on Charles Perrault’s tale.
Written for six instrumentalists based on Charles Perrault’s tale, this Little Red Riding Hood lets the instruments depict the scenery and play all the characters: the text turns into music and music becomes drama just as the wolf becomes a grandmother. A musical dream for young and older audiences.
