Plus a tour of scenes from the opera in Czech for the Czech Educational Foundation of Texas December 3-9, 2018 

This delightful opera follows the adventures of a quick-witted vixen, from her capture as a cub by a gamekeeper, through her escape (a few dead chickens later) back into the forest, to her falling in love and rearing her own family, and ending in her death at the hands of a poacher.  The Cunning Little Vixen is a parable of the cycle of life and nature, set in a magical forest world created by Designer Donna Marquet. Performed in English. Based on a popular Czech newspaper cartoon series (the Charlie Brown of its day?!) this is a rare opportunity to see one of the most charming and heartwarming operas ever written. Don't miss it!
