Miami Music Festival Presents Family Opera Series: The Cunning Little Vixen

Opera, Classical

Miami Music Festival, an intensive training program for the next generation of classical musicians to work with mentors and gain performing experience, announces the lineup for the 2017 season from June 6 through July 30, 2017. In their fourth season, MMF will also present a series of Operas as part of the MMF’s Opera Institute. The popular MMF Family Opera series returns with Janácek’s comedic fairy tale that brings the forest and its myriad inhabitants to life. Appropriate for ages 7 and up, the Grimm Brother’s style tale is at turns funny and philosophical. The story follows a spirited vixen through her cub-hood as a housepet, to her escape and coming of age in the moonlit woods. Families will love the magic of dragonflies flitting through the forest and talking frogs that dance to life as the Vixen and her fellow creatures navigate life, love, and the antagonism of the Hunters that encroach upon their world.
