A Forester captures a young Vixen and takes her home as a pet for his children. But when she is harassed by the Forester’s amorous dog, and tormented by the children, she escapes back into the wild. There, the Vixen meets a Fox and has a family, but later she is shot dead as she fends for her cubs. Her children survive, however, and the opera ends in an affirmation of the power of nature to renew itself.
Inspired by the sights and sounds of his native Moravian countryside, Janáček’s colouristic score vividly evokes both the human and animal worlds without a trace of sentimentality. David Pountney’s production – here conducted by Music Director Garry Walker – is widely regarded as a classic.
‘… a must-see production bursting with life’

The Cunning Little Vixen – School Matinee – Wednesday 15 March 2023, 1:00pm
Looking ahead to the Winter season, we have our Schools’ Matinee of The Cunning Little Vixen. I’ve attached some standalone information for this and it would be great if you could set up a web page for the schools’ matinee and the online schools’ workshops and link to this from any school’s pages / comms that you issue over the next few months. This will be a great introduction for KS2 & KS3 to the opera and the wider learning opportunities will be valuable for the schools involved. TO BOOK YOUR SCHOOL GROUP INTO THIS PERFORMANCE PLEASE CALL THE BOX OFFICE ON 0115 989 5555
