Charlie and the Wolf
Dave Ragland Jr. and Mary McCallum

Join us for the public world premiere of Charlie and the Wolf, an original opera composed by Dave Ragland, Jr. with lyrics by Mary McCallum.


Schoolkid Logan gets the surprise of her life when music class is suddenly interrupted by jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker and classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This charming new opera reminds us we all play with the same notes... we just interpret them differently! A perfect introduction to opera for audiences of all ages.

40 minutes. Free to attend.
