Inspired by a newspaper comic strip, WNO’s colorful production of Leoš Janáček’s opera is charming, funny, and profound in equal measure.
One afternoon deep in the forest, the Forester stumbles across a young vixen and takes her home as a pet for his family. But this playful creature has bigger plans and escapes to take on the world on her own terms. As her adventure unfolds, all the creatures of the forest come to life, in a tale that celebrates the circle of life.
