Little Red Riding Hood

Our Little Red Riding Hood is a young, courageous and energetic young girl … though a bit stubborn and rebellious. Against her mother’s instructions, she chooses the shortest but most dangerous path to her ailing grandmother’s house: through the forest!

Along the way, she meets many small and very friendly creatures, but also a great, big and crafty wolf with an enticing voice. This theatrical tale for the whole family is brought to life with shimmering, wondrous music performed by the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, conducted by Maestro Nagano. Audiences are sure to be captivated, and comforted, as they would be on a family Sunday … complete with cake and lovely fresh butter!

Presented in french.
