“The Cunning Little Vixen” in Finland

logofinlandThe Finnish National Opera Presents:

vixenThe Cunning Little Vixen

Leoš Janáček

A young vixen, or female fox, is captured by a forest ranger and obliged to learn to live among humans. The vixen finally escapes to freedom and the proper life of a fox, however short that may be. Featuring a cast of animal characters, this opera resembling a fairy tale is suitable for the whole family.

Leoš Janáček depicted tragic human characters in his works but also demonstrated a profound understanding of nature. The Cunning Little Vixen is an insightful study about the relationship between the restrictions of human life and the freedom of the animal kingdom.

A fantastically imaginative realisation of the colourful world of animals is presented in the opera set design début of internationally recognised designer Klaus Haapaniemi. The director and choreographer are Immo Karaman and Fabian Posca, who created the acclaimed production of Doctor Atomic.

Tickets for the spring season performances available from 6 Oct 2014.

Duration 2 h 10 min, 1 intermission
Performed in Finnish, surtitles in Finnish, Swedish and English.
