The forest comes alive in our new production of Janáček’s Cunning Little Vixen. One of the great masterpieces of early twentieth century music, this rarely-heard opera will be staged for five performances only.
Celebrating the beauty of nature and cycle of life, Cunning Little Vixen muses on the interaction between human and animal life. Set in an idyllic forest, the story follows a Vixen’s lyrical journey from youth to adulthood.
Janáček (Jenůfa, Katya Kabanová) was aged 70 when the opera premiered in 1924. His music pulses with life and colour, majesty and grandeur; reflecting a great musical maturity and understanding of life.
A joyous, life-affirming treat for all lovers of music and theatre, the 90 minute opera is sung in English and considered a perfect introduction to opera for families and first-timers.
