About the Event

The Moravian countryside, which the composer never left, becomes the vast theatre of existence in Leos Janacek's charming opera 'The Cunning Little Vixen'. The work will be performed at the Bastille Opera House in Paris.__

'The Cunning Little Vixen' is a fable, profound but with a light touch, naïve and melancholy, mingling and sometimes confusing animals and humans. Leos Janacek was seventy years old and still unknown to the public at large in 1924, when it was first performed. Erwin Schulhoff would later remember his phenomenal vitality and the untamed youthfulness of his gaze. It is life itself that flows here, the rising sap, the endless round of the seasons, of death and birth in the shade of the same trees. 

With ineffable imagination, Janacek hears and transcribes the eternal song of the earth.

Sung in Czech
