Immerse yourself in summertime for OTO's "The Cunning Little Vixen," bringing together cuisine, opera and dance at Wild Goose Farm on Sauvie Island. Leos Janacek's wildly passionate fable celebrates nature's cycles of birth, love, death and renewal through the eyes of both humans and animals. Starring Caitlin Mathes as Vixen Sharp Ears, Erik Hundtoft as the Gamekeeper and Rachel Hauge as Golden Mane the Fox. Featuring the Agnieszka Laska Dancers, choreography by Agnieszka Laska. Directed by Clara Weishahn. Musical direction by Erica Melton. Presented in English with chamber accompaniment.
Guests are invited to arrive early and enjoy the farm and libations available at the bar tucked among the orchard trees while Czech chanteuse Helena Greathouse and accordionist Mark Greathouse warm up the audience with native folk and cabaret music. Before the July 27 performance, audience members can participate in a Farm-to-Table dinner prepared by chef Thomas Boyce. This is an outdoor production; we recommend that guests bring picnic blankets, chairs or cushions for comfort. Metal folding chairs will also be available on site.
1 hour 35 minutes with 1 intermission
