Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.

On first listen, the two most recent singles released by folksy Swiss metallurgists Eluveitie seem to come from two bands that wouldn’t even tour together. “The Call of the Mountains” sounds as if the Corrs came back with badass tattoos and “King” is heavier-than-thou doom-gaze, at least till the bagpipes kick in. In the context of the album, they’re part of a larger song cycle incorporating Celtic mythology and traditional instruments (like violins, the hurdy gurdy and uilleann pipes) into metal heavy enough to befit a band with a name taken from ancient Etruscan graffiti.
