Composer John Davies’ operatic adaptation of the classic fairy tale, The Billy Goats Gruff, takes a familiar story and adds a strong anti-bullying message that promotes the power of kindness.

Ideal for children in pre-K through 5th grade, this 40-minute opera is set to some of the greatest music by Mozart, Rossini,and Donizetti.

Capitol City's Outreach for Children performances use music to present complex ideas such as self-esteem, teamwork, honesty, and even scientific theory, in a fresh, accessible way. The goal is to have the children leave the performance with more than just a sense of classical music – they leave with a sense of themselves and how their actions can affect events around them.

The Billy Goats Gruff production is made possible, in part, through a special grant from Opera Volunteers International as well as Capitol City Opera donors who designated gifts to support the company's Outreach for Children programming.

A touring production of this show is also be available for booking at schools, churches and other community events throughout the 2016-2017 season. For more information, contact Courtney Loner at (678) 522-4338 or
