OPERA San Antonio Presents FANTASTIC MR. FOX, 9/23-28
by BWW News Desk - Jul 17, 2014

Composed by OPERA San Antonio Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox features a fox who will stop at nothing to keep his family safe. 'Fantastic Mr. Fox is full of tuneful arias and ensembles that you'll leave the theater humming,' says Picker. 'The Children's Chorus of Trees, featuring the Children's Chorus of San Antonio, watches over the antics of the Fox family and friends and the mean and selfish farmers, commenting like a Greek chorus. There is a soulful duet between Mr. Porcupine and Miss Hedgehog when they fall in love across a crowded room. And of course you'll see Mr. and Mrs. Fox lead the animal world in an elegant Fox Trot! I wrote this opera for children ages five through 115. There is humor and charm for every member of the family to enjoy. Please join us for this celebration of life and nature in song and a brilliantly illustrated and stunningly sung production.' (more...)
