HOUSTON GRAND OPERA 1991
Synopsis: Based on the original, but thoroughly reworked for the theatrical sensibilities of modern audiences while retaining Victor Herbert's beloved score. The adventures on the journey to Toyland take place in a lush fairy tale where the little old lady really does live in a shoe, and the flying Moth Queen and living trees make the Forbidden Forest a place of terror and beauty.
"Opera sure to be a holiday hit."
"From the melodious sound of the score to Babes in Toyland and the delightfully spectacular visual production with which Houston Grand Opera
has revived Victor Herbert's beloved old operetta, it looks as though the company has a yuletide hit."
