LOVE! WAR! GODS! FROGS!
Tragedy strikes and comedy ensues when a young Queen learns that with great power comes great controversy. A poor fisherman is granted three wishes, but that may not be enough for two daughters. A lion sacrifices his claws for love. An inventor tries to outwit fate, and amphibian voters elect themselves a carnivorous queen! With modern flair, these lush and lyrical mini-operas take inspiration from Aesop’s classic fables of human nature’s essential truths.
