British Youth Opera — one of the country's foremost opera training companies — presents Leoš Janáček’s ever-popular The Cunning Little Vixen. Based on a narrated series of cartoon drawings, Janàček brought his own passion for the natural world to bear on his ultimately optimistic view of the cycle of life and death.

Janáček’s tale of the vixen’s rebellion against her capture and subsequent romance has captivated audiences since its first production in 1924. The story of this mischievous fox continues to transport spectators with its enchanting music and stirring vision of the countryside.

This production is presented in repertoire with a double-bill of seldom performed 20th Century British masterpieces: Vaughan Williams’s Riders to the Sea and Gustav Holst’s Sāvitri.
