The popular MMF Family Opera series returns with an English-setting of Janáček’s comedic fairytale that brings the forest and its many enchanting inhabitants to life. Appropriate for ages 7 and up, the Grimm Brother’s style fairytale is at turns wildly funny and philosophical in tone. The 20th century opera follows a spirited vixen through her cub-hood as a housepet, to her escape and coming of age in the moonlit woods. The sounds of Slavic Moravia weave their way through the score as she and her fellow forest animals navigate life, love, and the antagonism of the Hunters that encroach upon their world. Families will love the magic of dragonflies dancing through the woods, talking frogs come to life, and human revelers that craft the warmth of the tale.
