The Cunning Little Vixen
The Cunning Little Vixen, inspired by the newspaper serial story of Rudolf
Těsnohlídek and Stanislav Lolek, transposed in 1921–1923 with great
understanding, feeling and hyperbole into operatic form, is a title possessing
significant potential to captivate the audience. Owing to its wit, profound
ideas and emotionality, the work speaks to adults, while children are enchanted
by its picturesque nature and exquisite scenery. Despite being one of the most
famous Czech operas and part of the standard global repertoire, in our country
Janáček’s work is still not as popular (perhaps due to the ingrained
prejudice against the composer’s music) as comparable titles such as The
Bartered Bride, Rusalka and The Devil and Kate.
Duration of the performance: 2 hours and 10 minutes, 1 intermission
The opera is staged in Czech original version and Czech and English subtitles
are used in the performance.
Premiere – March 20, 2014
