Tasmania Symphony Orchestra - Little Red Riding Hood
A girl in a red cape. An old lady in bed. A cunning wolf. Roald Dahl takes the familiar ingredients of Little Red Riding Hood and gives them a fresh makeover in his quirky retelling of the classic fairy tale. As you would expect, his adaptation is filled with idiosyncratic delights. Maybe grandma isn’t quite so helpless. Maybe the wolf isn’t quite so clever. Maybe Red Riding Hood isn’t quite so gullible. Dahl’s whimsical adaptation is paired with an equally good-humoured score by composer Paul Patterson. The Brothers Grimm were never quite as much fun as this!
