Opera by Carman Moore with libretto by Oyamo.

Inspired by an ancient Greek fable, steeped with magic realism, and with N'Orleans-style swing and jazz music, the production follows the trials of young Charles. He learns that how we treat others matters, and that being good isn't always easy but is rewarded in the end. When Charles comes across the queen of an enchanted forest and witnesses her supernatural powers as a healer of the environment, he vows to become her apprentice. However, his arrogance and gullibility all but ruin his chances until he learns his lessons and bravely aids the sorcerer in a battle against her villain.
