The Cunning Little Vixen by Leoš Janáček
Czech original version with Czech and English surtitles
Janáček’s celebrated “philosophical revue“ on animals and people, desire, disillusionment with life and wise atonement with eternal Nature was inspired by the newspaper serial story of Rudolf Těsnohlídek and Stanislav Lolek.
Transposed in 1921-1923 with great understanding, feeling and hyperbole into operatic form, The Cunning Little Vixen is a title possessing significant potential to captivate the audience. Owing to its wit, profound ideas and emotionality, this opera speaks to adults, while children are enchanted by its picturesque nature and exquisite scenery.
