About

In few words:

“The forest was darker than the night and I felt free!” sings the Little Vixen, as she tells the Fox how she managed to escape the Forester who was trying to capture her. This adaptation of Leoš Janáček’s opera puts the spotlight on the adventures of Bystrouška (the Little Vixen) in a make-believe world where animals talk, sing and live among humans, and die and are reborn. It is a philosophical tale that evokes the relationship between animals, mankind, nature, freedom, and the passage of time. The music, inspired by the folklore of Central Europe, punctuates the exploits of all the characters and brilliantly depicts this unusual world.
