A modern take on the 3 Billy Goats Gruff using 'cartoon' music (Bugs Bunny, Looney Tunes).
There is sibling quibbling in the Gruff household. Silly, Willy and Milly need to get to the Opera House on the other side of the bridge for an audition, but they are afraid of the 'dreadful' troll who lives underneath it. But the person under the bridge might not actually be mean at all, if anyone bothered to get to know him. Learning the pitfalls of ill-informed opinions and pre-judgment, the Gruffs discover that they can depend on each other – and on their new friend.
A fun operatic experience for children and their families, loosely based on the Three Billy Goats Gruff, set to music from Bugs Bunny and Looney Tunes (Rossini). Our first podcast is directed by award-winning filmmaker Greta Nash, and features the spectacular voices of Young Artists of Gertrude Opera.
This 50-minute, quirky, humorous production has previously delighted audiences at the Port Fairy Spring Festival, on regional tour in Victoria, and at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne.
