Jack and the Beanstalk


Jack and the Beanstalk

The story of Jack & the Beanstalk possesses just the right larger-than-life characters for a children’s opera. With an adventuresome boy, his sweet mother, a giant and his beleaguered wife, and a mysterious trader in magical beans, the English folktale moves along with energy and personality. With that in mind, professional opera singer and director John Davies used the music of English operetta composer, Sir Arthur Sullivan. Sir Arthur’s music is highly accessible, lots of fun and always healthy to sing: three essential qualities when presenting performances before schoolchildren in school gymnasiums.


Jack & The Beanstalk
is designed to encourage an interest and enthusiasm for literature and music through musical theater.
