Stone Soup a "Rock" Opera

Three Soldiers Outwit the Town
Three Soldiers Outwit the Town

Madison first through third grade students recently performed Stone Soup a “Rock” Opera for about ninety grandparents at an afternoon performance followed by a special time of punch and cookies. The students also did an evening performance for parents and other special guests. "Stone Soup, first published in 1947, is a classic picture book that remains one of Marcia Brown's most popular and enduring tale. The story, about three hungry soldiers who outwit the greedy inhabitants of a village into providing them with a feast, is based on an old French tale." Miss Kuzdzal’s work with students simply reinforced the value of this timeless tale as students worked together to prepare and perform this musical play.
