Opera North’s witty adaptation of Belloc’s deliciously macabre Cautionary Tales for Children was a big hit with audiences and critics when it first premiered in March 2011. It’s now being revived in Leeds, Lancaster, Hexham, Thoresby and Halifax, directed by Pia Furtado with Tom as assistant director.
“Bad boys and girls including lying Matilda, runaway Jim and daredevil George entertain you with their disobedient ways and dreadful ends. Full of colourful tunes and stories, this is a lively short piece of musical theatre for all the family and an ideal introduction to opera.”
Based on Hilaire Belloc’s verses
Composed by Errollyn Wallen
Adapted and directed by Pia Furtado
