2014 Family Opera
Saturday and Sunday, March 29 and 30, 2014
Saturday and Sunday, April 5 and 6, 2014
Our 2014 family opera will be the North American (and NCFO) premiere of Rain Dance (synopsis with music), inspired by Tish Farrell's story, "The Hare Who Would Not Be King." Rain Dance was commissioned by the W11 Opera for Young People and first performed by them in December 2010. The opera was written by Stuart Hancock (music) and by Donald Sturrock (libretto). It is the tale of animals on the South African savannah facing a drought, the Machiavellian lion whom they elect to lead them, and their unlikely hero, a brilliant but neurotic and politically apathetic rabbit.
