About "The Billy Goats Gruff"
This universal classic and its timeless characters provide the perfect backdrop for this pastiche opera, brilliantly interwoven by John Davies with music by Mozart and scenes by Mozart, Donizetti and Rossini. When three billy goats encounter a big bully goat blocking their way home from school, the billy goats try different strategies to defeat the bully goat.
