Things are not wat they seem (6+)

Close your eyes, 
Imagine walking through a beautiful forest
You know every little branch of every little tree
You know everyone who lives there:
Who’s good and who’s bad,
Who’s kind, who’s funny -
and also:
who’s dangerous

What if that forest isn't exactly what it seems? Maybe that little branch is really a flute. Maybe those who look kind are just silly. And maybe those who look dangerous aren't so dangerous after all? 

Devious, greedy and dishonest: that is how you know the wolf in the fairy tales you have been told. But what if he is just very misunderstood? What if we take a look from his perspective? That incident with Little Red Riding Hood, that scene at the door of the piglets: it was not as simple as we have thought all this time. Through a series of misunderstandings, prejudice, bad luck and bizarre coincidences, the wolf has been wrongly portrayed as the villain. It is high time for wolf's honour to be restored.

The Girl, the Hunter and the Wolf is an opera for everyone from 6 years and older, by composer Vasco Mendonça, writer Gonçalo M. Tavares and director Inne Goris.
