The game’s afoot! A giant is dead, and his body lies at the base of a great beanstalk. The police believe young Jack is responsible. But the boy insists that he’s innocent and begs the help of the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his colleague, Dr. Watson. Can they untangle this magical mystery?

In this operatic adventure for the entire family, as Holmes tries to discover if young Jack was framed for the murder, he turns to a magic harp for clues that come in the form of quotes from some opera greats, all cleverly woven into the plot. This buoyant, inventive score and creative mashup of Jack and the Beanstalk with Sherlock Holmes is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.
