About The Cunning Little Vixen
Be transported to the forest and follow the enchanting tale of Vixen Sharp Ears. Captured by a Forester as a young cub, Sharp Ears dreams of freedom and escapes to take on the world. As her mischief unfolds, all the creatures of the forest come to life and rebellious hens, delicate dragonflies and playful squirrels help her on her journey.
This bittersweet fairy tale celebrates the cycle of life and the connection between the human and animal worlds. Janáček’s playful folk-infused melodies which burst with energy, alongside the colourful costumes and engaging storyline, make this a thrilling outing for school groups.
Inspired by the sights and sounds of Janáček’s native Moravian countryside, this colourful production vividly evokes both the human and animal worlds without a trace of sentimentality.
