Los Coyotes y Las Conejas

(The Coyotes and the Rabbits)

By Héctor Armienta

Meet Scrawny, a young coyote on an adventure learning to read – something no decent coyote would do – and his cousin, Loco, aiming to set him on the right path. Guiding us through their misadventures are the mischievous rabbits Chiquita and Banana, having their own fun with Loco and his lack of learning.

This 35-minute bilingual opera is based on a Mexican folktale, underscoring the importance of education to a life filled with adventures in knowledge.
