An evil stepmother chops off a boy's head and serves him to her family in stew. A farmer learns to put his pants on one leg at a time, thus freeing up lots of time to do his chores. Wolf Trap Opera presents a highly entertaining double-bill at The Barns: Bastianello by John Musto and The Juniper Tree by Philip Glass and Robert Moran. Conductor Lidiya Yankovskaya chats with Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix about these two modern mini-masterpieces. She talks about how the musical styles illustrate the comic or macabre action, and how the Wolf Trap Opera team puts such a challenging show together. Bastianello and The Juniper Tree run from August 11th through the 19th.
