Programme Note

Synopsis:
If the ordinary but imaginative boy of this brief children’s opera had super powers, he would know “The earth weighs exactly 658 septillion pounds,” among many other things – and, he’d be a superhero. He could finish his homework and clean his room in half a second, as his good mother wishes. Will he, before dinner?
