The game’s afoot! A giant is dead, and his body lies at the base of a great beanstalk. The police believe young Jack is responsible. But the boy insists that he’s innocent, and begs the help of the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his colleague, Dr. Watson. Can they untangle this magical mystery?
Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Fallen Giant was commissioned by ALT as part of our initiative to develop new family-friendly, full-length operas. Join us for the next event in our InsightALT series, and get a glimpse inside ALT’s development process. This one-night-only concert presentation is the culmination of a week-long workshop for the opera.
