” In times gone by, into a grove
Occasion ancient there brought
Under the shade of season yellow –
Red Riding Hood and Wolf together…”
In his captivating 1980 poem “A Tale About the Little Red Riding Hood,”, Nedyalko Yordanov (deemed a modern classic of Bulgarian poetry) transforms the familiar tale by Charles Perrault into a beautiful versified narrative about love and loss, societal prejudice, and stagnant tradition.
“In Times Gone By” is Argent’s multimedia adaptation of Nedyalko Yordanov’s original poem that brings together an international team including Broadway veteran John Wilkerson (narration), Lubo Sergeev, pinned “one of the 200 most influential visual storytellers in the world” (live-action video production), Julieta Kaludova (scriptwriting, poem translation), and Isabel Pattie (original score).
