Strega Nona (Italian for "Grandmother Witch") conjures a never ending supply of pasta from her magic pot. Her new assistant Big Anthony struggles to pay attention and floods the town with carbohydrates. The secret to the spell is love and understanding. Based on the Caldecott award winning story book by Tomie dePaola, this revival is one of Opera to Go!’s most requested productions.
