South Australian Premiere

The forest comes alive. One of the great masterpieces of early twentieth century music, this rarely-heard opera will be staged for four performances only.

Based on Rudolf Tesnohlídek illustrated story published in 1920, 
Cunning Little Vixen muses on the interaction between human and animal life and the cycles and beauty of nature.

Set in an idyllic forest, the story f
ollows a Vixen’s lyrical journey from youth to adulthood.

A joyous, life-affirming treat for all lovers of music and theatre, this 90 minute opera is sung in English and considered a perfect introduction to opera for families and first-timers.

★★★★ This is, at heart, an intense, profound work about the cycle of nature in which creatures from the forest play just a part in the continuum of birth, ageing and death that affects us all. The Age
★★★★☆ A cunning and colourful response to Janáček’s extraordinary score. Limelight
