This operatic version of the story of Goldilocks is based on scenes from operas by Mozart and J. Offenbach.

Goldie B. Locks doesn’t just like bugs, she loves them. When a beautiful butterfly flutters off into the woods, she chases it, forgetting a promise made to her mom to stay close to home. Ending up lost and alone, Goldie B’s story unfolds much like the traditional Goldilocks, but with one important difference.

The OWR Young Artists perform at area schools. Its programs include “Fun with Opera,” an interactive performance where students help create the scenario for a one-of-a-kind improvised opera.
