A devil of a story about the meaning of love.
Composed by Lukas Foss
Libretto by Alastair Reid
Griffelkin is the story of a little devil who travels to Earth to perform one bad deed for his tenth birthday. While wreaking havoc, he meets a brother and sister grieving over the loss of their mother. After using his magic to bring her back to life, Griffelkin is found guilty of treason against Hell. He’s exiled to Earth, and just when he is feeling most alone, he learns the meaning of family. This opera is ideal for kids ages 8 – 80.
