The Opéra de Lausanne presents the world premiere of an opera based on the famous tale by Charles Perrault.

The famous story of the little girl with the crimson hood, her grandmother and wolf, which entered popular culture, is no longer told. While some of Perrault’s tales have inspired a good number of composers (Bluebeard for Bartók, Sleeping Beauty for Tchaikovsky or Cinderella for Isouard or Viardot), Little Red Riding Hood seems to have had only ephemeral success on lyrical stages. There are only two adaptations, which have since fallen into oblivion: one by Gaston Serpette (1885) and the other by Célestin Fontana (1943). It’s the reason why  the Opéra de Lausanne has decided to bring this tale back to life in music thanks to the talents of two young Swiss artists: composer Guy-François Leuenberger and librettist Stefania Pinnelli.

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