Cunning Little Vixen

Victorian Opera presents Leos Janacek’s presents

Cunning Little Vixen

One of the great operatic masterpieces of the 20th century, Leoš Janáček’s Cunning Little Vixen marvels at the beauty of nature and the process of renewal. This juxtaposition of human and animal life set in an idyllic forest follows the story of Vixen Sharpears: her youth, journey to adulthood, motherhood and death.

In a new production for Victorian Opera, director Stuart Maunder AM (Into the Woods) is united with Tony Award-winning designer Roger Kirk following 2015's Sweeney Todd. Conductor Jack Symonds leads a chamber version of Janáček’s unique, lyrical opera. Cunning Little Vixen is a profound work of genius and a reflection on the cycle of life.
