Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop!

1985 NR

Two beloved works from Maurice Sendak come thrillingly to life in this pair of fantastical operas, featuring music by British composer Oliver Knussen and beguiling sets designed by the famed children's book author himself. Young Max finds a magical world full of creatures from his imagination in "Where the Wild Things Are." And Jennie, a pampered Sealyham terrier, embarks on a quest to find something she doesn't have in "Higglety Pigglety Pop!"
