July 13, 2013

It's official! Tulsa Opera will be touring Hector Armienta's bilingual children's opera,The Coyotes and the Rabbits/ Los Coyotes y Las Conejas this coming season. With funding from the Walter and Elise Haas Fund and American Composers Forum, the Music Theater Collaborative first toured the opera in San Francisco in 1997.  Forth Worth Opera toured it for three years soon after. 

Based on a Mexican folk tale, the opera teaches children the importance of an education.
