2:00 pm -

Step into a world of French wonder and whimsy in these two one-act operas. With a libretto by the adventurous French novelist Colette, Ravel’s score escorts us through a magical world in which a mischievous child meets animals and objects who talk and teach him how to have compassion. Then accept the invitation to Mr. Cauliflower’s hilarious musical soiree where famous opera singers are expected to perform, but will they show up?

Libretti by Colette / Duc de Morny
English translation of dialogue by Edward Mabley
Sung in the original French with English dialogue.
