The Cunning Little Vixen

From Upbeat, 1:00 pm on 24 July 2017

Singers from the New Zealand School of Music are finding their inner animal as they bring to life Janáček’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen. Director Jon Hunter is turning convention on its head with his contemporary realisation of the opera. His Vixen sung by soprano Pascale Orchard lives on the fringes of both the animal and human worlds, as industrialisation takes over spaces where animals once lived.
