For more about Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes:
Our musical versions of the Revolting Rhymes end as they began with a commission from Paul Patterson, which was premiered in Basel in 2004, by the Basel Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Howard Griffiths. Roald Dahl's version of The Three Little Pigs is subversive in the extreme and contains a series of dark, gruesome and outrageously comic twists. Its first performances drew rapturous applause from its Swiss audiences and glowing reviews from the press.
Music by Paul Patterson
Text Adapted by Donald Sturrock
"A resounding success... a welcome addition to the youth repertoire."
