Leos Janácek: The Cunning Little Vixen (1924)*
Sung in English
*New York premiere of Jonathan Dove's orchestration
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales at the door will benefit the Humane Society of New York.
Explore the lush wilderness of the Czech forest primeval in Janácek's The Cunning Little Vixen. With extraordinary inventiveness the composer transformed a daily Czech comic strip (see it here) into a touching opera about tender relationships between humans and animals and the cycle of life. Is this bittersweet fable a reflection on Janácek's unrequited love for Kamila Stosslova? Does the forester represent Janácek and Kamila the vixen?
Performance length: 2 hours with intermission
