Listen to this story
The Crane School of Music's Opera Ensemble presents Maurice Ravel's classic fantasy opera, L'Enfant et les Sortileges, or The Child and the Enchanted Ones this weekend. The opera opens tomorrow morning with a special education outreach performance for children and families, and continues Friday and Saturday night. The fantasy opera includes fairy tale characters, furniture and little animals which come to life to chastise a child who has been tormenting them. Todd Moe spoke with some of the cast and Crane Opera Ensemble director Carleen Graham who says Ravel's opera is the fable of a rude child who finds that the objects and animals of his childhood have their own lessons to teach.
