GOLDILOCKS & THE THREE BEARS
For narrator/s and symphony orchestra
Published by Boosey and Hawkes
Music by Kurt Schwertsik
Text Adapted by Donald Sturrock
Goldilocks and the Three Bears has proved itself to be a very flexible and witty work of music theatre. It is set in a courtroom in the forest, with two animal lawyers, an animal judge and jury, and of course a family of bears who turn the tables on the would-be litigant, Miss Goldie Locks. The work is based on Roald Dahl's version of the traditional fairy-tale from his irreverent book of comic verse, Revolting Rhymes and the music is a brilliant series of dances, interludes and melodramas written for a conventional chamber orchestra.
“[Schwertsik’s] colourful, rhythmically pungent interpretations delivered… wit and originaility”
"A series of beautifully crazed dances"
