Description: Based on the 1820 story by Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1997) tells the plight of the schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, who gives singing lessons to young women in the Dutch community of Tarrytown, New York during the early 19th Century. Ichabod is a figure of fun and has little in common with the townsfolk, except for their belief in ghosts and spirits � especially the fearful Headless Horseman, who threatens travelers at night in a nearby glen called Sleepy Hollow. Poor Ichabod courts Katrina, the daughter of a rich farmer. This sparks the jealousy of the town mischief-maker, Brom Bones. One night, Ichabod is chased by the Headless Horseman and mysteriously disappears. Brom Bones marries Katrina while the townsfolk debate Ichabod�s fate� was he taken away by spirits or scared away by more logical causes, perhaps even by Brom Bones? A perfectly scary family opera in time for Halloween!
