Librettist:Donald Sturrock
Synopsis
First published in 1970, "Fantastic Mr. Fox" tells the story of a wily fox who must outwit the three meanest farmers in the countryside to feed and protect his family and the other wild animals. The book is a perennial favorite, dealing with the themes of good versus evil, technology versus nature, and the complex relationships between animals and humans as they co-exist on the same earth.
