The Three Piggy Opera is the whimsical story of what happened AFTER the wolf blew down the Pigs' houses.  The Pigs are angry, living with their mom and up to their chinny-chin-chins in insurance claims.  So they do what any wronged law-abiding person (or pig) would do -they hire the best lawyer they can find and take the wolf to court.  They think they have the case in the bag, afterall, everybody knows about the Big Bad Wolf.  Everybody knows Wolves eat Pigs. The Wolf is given a public defender,  the paparazzi is having a field day, and the jury is ready to convict and get back to their lives (And it doesn't hurt that the Judge is the Pigs cousin either)  But as the court case progresses we see the wolf for who she really is, not big and bad at all, but an out-cast vegetarian with severe allergies due to the Santa Ana winds.  The Pig's straw house set off her allergies, and with one good sneeze, down went the house.  Will the Wolf be able to convince the Court she is innocent?  What will the ruling be?  Listen in and find out!
