'Little Red's Most Unusual Day' at Rosa Parks

Originally posted February 28, 2017

Who is afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Not the kids at Rosa Parks Elementary who found the character a true delight as the Wolf sang and howled in the children's opera version of Little Red Riding Hood today.

Assistant Principal Jackie DuPont was a special performer, chasing away the Big bad Wolf at the end. 

Presented by Tulsa Opera, "Little Red's Most Unusual Day" featured the characters in a comical story that entertained first and second graders in the school gym today. 

Billed as more than just a performance, Tulsa Opera provided teachers with preparatory lesson plans and opera music for students to listen to in class prior to the show.  Students participated in a Q&A session following the performance!  Each year, Tulsa Opera travels across the region to bring the world of opera to students in towns of all sizes.
