The Wild Beast of the Bungalow
The Wild Beast of the Bungalow follows an eleven-year-old Girl through a triptych of short operas. First, in Mermaid in the Jar, adapted from the short story by Sheila Heti, she begins a reign of terror over a most unwelcome living gift. Then, in Prairie Dogs, inspired by the Gopher Hole Museum, the Girl divorces her real parents and creates her own taxidermied prairie dog family, only to find that they are not the affectionate substitutes shed hoped they would be. Finally, in Fine and Dandy, the Girl is quarantined in her room, facing forces she cannot control: The Fine and Dandies, a barbershop quartet of chicken pox, and her mothers own 60s-style girl group of illness, The Shingles. Quirky and darkly comic, The Wild Beast of the Bungalow exposes the brutality that can lurk in even the most seemingly innocent places, both outside and within.

Donata Cucinotta sings the leading role. Directed by Sam Helfrich and conducted by Daniela Candillari. The Wild Beast of the Bungalow is part of the CCO Development Series, supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
