Fox: the opera Retold by SCLB of Penrith PS, 2010 based on the picture book “Fox” by Margaret Wild & Ron Brooks and the opera by Monkey Baa Theatre
SCLB went to see “Fox”. x
After the bushfire... x
x... Magpie was hurt. Her wing was broken when a tree fell on her. Along came Dog, who only had one good eye. Magpie thought that Dog was going to eat her.
x Dog wanted to be Magpie’s friend. Magpie will be Dog’s missing eye and Dog will be Magpie’s broken wing. Dog with one eye.
x Dog put Magpie on his back and jumped over the water. Magpie thought their reflection was a strange animal but Dog said, “It is just us.” Then Fox came into the forest with his red coat and brown boots.
x Dog and Magpie thought Fox looked scary. Fox kept looking at Magpie. “I can run faster than Dog,” said Fox to Magpie. “You will like flying with me.”
x Fox ran with Magpie into the hot desert. He took her off his back and left her on the sand.
x Dog tried to find Magpie because Dog and Magpie were friends. Fox was jealous. He ran away and went back home. Magpie was still in the hot desert.
x The actors used puppets, costumes and actions to tell the story of “Fox”. They used white cloth for Magpie’s wings when she was remembering how to fly. The singer had long hair. She sang the story of Fox, Dog and Magpie.
We had a great time! x
