Opera Xpress: The Billy Goat's Gruff

Opera Xpress: The Billy Goat's Gruff
The Billy Goat's Gruff is an operatic version of the well-known story based on scenes from the exciting operatic works of W. A. Mozart, G. Donizetti and G. Rossini! An after school game of hide and seek is ruined for three billy goat friends when a big bully blocks a bridge, preventing them from being able to go home. Remembering what their moms, dads and teachers have told them about dealing with bullies, two boy billy goats resolve to go home a different, longer way and share their difficulties with grownups.
