All the drama and romance of the famous Robin Hood legend in a brand new opera. They're all there: Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, Little John, the Merry Men, Richard the Lionhearted, the evil Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. It's the original legend from the original sources, but told like Les Miz in an all sung opera that is filled with the familiar phrases of the Robin Hood legend. Songs like "Bow and Arrow," "Let the Better Man Pass," "Take from the Rich," "Behold the Merry Men," and the haunting anthem "Sherwood Forest" create a bold new work.
