Opera Express retells the familiar story set to operatic excerpts from four famous Mozart operas. While brother pigs Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off to make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina, goes to the library to read up on huff-proof, puff-proof home construction. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys' flimsy homes, they run to their sister's sturdy new brick house quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all. Suggested for K-5th.
