Viterbo music students will perform the one-act opera The Bewitched Child (L'enfant et les Sortilèges) by famed 20th century French composer Maurice Ravel at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 in the Fine Arts Center LaCroix Black Box Theatre.

The Bewitched Child is the story of a rude child who, after being scolded by his mother, throws a tantrum, destroying his room and harming the animals nearby. He is then surprised to find that the unhappy objects in his room come to life. The furniture and decorations begin to talk; even his homework takes shape as it becomes an old man and a chorus of numbers. They all sing out the pain and misery that the child inflicts on them, leading him to an understanding of compassion.
