THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXEN
Composed by Leoš Janáček
Libretto by Leoš Janáček (after Rudolf Těsnohlídek)
Mark Gibson, conductor
Vince DeGeorge, director
Based on the famous 1920s Czech comic strip and newspaper serial The Cunning Little Vixen is Leoš Janáček’s symphonic celebration of the diversity and interdependence of all life.
The opera, focusing on the lives of an aging Forester and an adventurous Vixen, tells the story of humans living long lives of quiet desperation along side animals interacting with each other in brutal harmony. It is a playful and heartbreaking tale of how life unfolds before us, circles around and reveals itself to be nothing more, nothing less, than a million little miracles.
This opera will be sun in English in a new singing translation by CCM Professor Emeritus David Adams.
$31-$35 adults; $20-$24 students; $18-$22 UC students
