Welcome to the latest installment of YourClassical Storytime, classic stories with a classical music twist. Today we share our version of The Three Little Pigs, in which our favorite piglets venture out on their own and learn a lesson about planning and doing things well. Oh, and there's a big, bad wolf! Along the way, we'll hear some wonderful melodies by French composer Georges Bizet.
