Chicken Diva

Yet another testimony to the power chickens have over our hearts and minds. Jack Hitt reports on an opera about Chicken Little. It's performed with dressed-up styrofoam balls, it's sung in Italian, and it's—no kidding—able to make grown men cry. CDs of the opera Love's Fowl by Susan Vitucci and Henry Krieger are available at pulcina.org. (13 minutes)
