    Don’t miss Montsalvatge’s operatic take on the classic story of a mangy feline with magical talents. See the amazing Bunraku puppetry that turns a fairy tale into an afternoon of “tuneful,” “magical,” “exquisite,” and eye-opening opera.

    A Gotham Chamber Opera and Tectonic Theater Project production.

    Co-produced by El Museo del Barrio and Works & Process at the Guggenheim.
