Janáček The Cunning Little Vixen

English translation by Norma Tucker
By arrangement with Universal Edition A G Wien

The RCM International Opera School and conductor Michael Rosewell present this year’s autumn production of Janáček’s tragi-comic opera The Cunning Little Vixen.

An enchanted forest comes to life in a wooded glen on a summer afternoon. A clever Vixen is captured by a Forester, but she outwits him and escapes. As the story unfolds, she encounters many woodland animals along the way before finding love with a Fox and having cubs of her own. But her dealings with the Forester are far from over – he sets a trap, but then realises the splendour of nature all around him in a life-affirming final scene.

Exploring the cycles of life and nature, Janáček combines dance, folk music and sensuous orchestral interludes in this beguiling and thought-provoking opera.

Sung in English

Tickets: £10, £20, £30, £40, £50
