Prizes include a bottle of Q's 1972 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon, lunch for four at the Pasta Buffet, tickets to a beer or bourbon dinner and a one night stay at the hotel, complete with breakfast.

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.
