The residents of Hamelin have problems, and rats are only the beginning! Robert Browning’s classic tale is transported to regional Australia in a zany reimagining of the Pied Piper with a surprise happy ending. The crooked Mr and Mrs Mayor are bankrupting the town of Hamelin with their greedy plans. When rats invade, The Pied Piper and his feline assistant Cat must help the characterful folk of this blighted town rid itself of all its pests. Richard Mills’ joyful and quirky family opera unites kids and adults from across Hobart as an on-stage community chorus appearing as the residents and rats of Hamelin alike.
