Byre Opera: The Cunning Little Vixen

After their outstanding debut performance at The Maltings in 2016 with The Turn of the Screw, The Maltings is thrilled to welcome back Byre Opera with their new production!

"A testament to the quality of the music-making at St Andrews" - **** Herald Scotland on The Turn of the Screw

The Cunning Little Vixen is the enchanting tale of a Forester who attempts to domesticate a young Vixen. The aging Forester goes on a search to find meaning and value in life, which culminates in an inspiring awakening to the power and beauty of nature. Janacek’s score vividly animates a forest full of life with words that ask fundamental questions about humanity, society and politics.
 
A chamber orchestra of leading Scottish musicians will be conducted by Michael Downes.
Scottish Opera trained director PJ Harris teams up with choreographer Liz Ranken and designers Victor Labarthe d’Arnoux and Antonin Boyot Gellibert to stage this inspiring opera and dance work.
 
Sung in English with translation from the original Czech by Yvetta Synek Graff and Robert T. Jones
 
The Adventures of Vixen Sharp Ears, Opera by Leos Janacek, in the chamber version by Jonathan Dove, by arrangement with Universal Edition A.G. Wien
