Simon Rattle conducts Janáček’s “The Cunning Little Vixen”

The hero in Leoš Janáček’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen is not a princess or a knight but an animal of the forest. This is a unique piece of music theatre in other respects as well, such as its magically luminous music, its poetry and its comedy. Simon Rattle presents the work together with star director Peter Sellars, with whom he has already realised many exciting projects, including their acclaimed interpretations of Bach’s Passions.
