Dog Days is the brekaout opera by David T. Little and Royce Vavrek. It has been praised as "one of the most exciting new operas of recent years" by "one of the most exciting composer-librettist teams working in opera today" by the Wall Street Journal. Dog Days explores the ultimate struggle of humanity - stuck between nature's indifference and society's barely restrained brutality. It asks: is it madness, delusion, or sheer animal instinct that guides us through severely trying times? Where is the line between animal and human, and as civilization breaks down, must we give into our animal instincts merely to survive?
