"Tire la chevillette, la bobinette cherra"

The Opéra de Lausanne presents a new world premiere of an opera based on the famous tale by Charles Perrault. The famous story of the little girl in the ruddy hood, her grandmother and the wolf, which has become part of popular culture, is no longer told. If some of Perrault’s tales have inspired many composers (Bluebeard for Bartók, Sleeping Beauty for Tchaikovsky or Cinderella for Isouard or Viardot), Little Red Riding Hood seems to have had a short-lived success on the opera stage. There are only two adaptations of it, which have since been forgotten: one by Gaston Serpette (1885) and the other by Célestin Fontana (1943). It is therefore with good reason that the Opéra de Lausanne has decided to bring this tale back to life in music thanks to the talents of two young Swiss artists: the composer Guy-François Leuenberger and the librettist Stefania Pinnelli.

There are several interpretations of the tale, revisited by the Grimm brothers, by Tex Avery or watered down for the needs of the film industry, but in a world where violence and aggression are omnipresent themes, this opera offers an optimistic version full of freshness, which will delight young and old alike.
