Leoš Janáček was inspired to write the opera by a cartoon newspaper series about the adventures of the fox Bystrouška. This poetic work, combining the world of animals and humans, is a declaration of the composer's love for nature and a celebration of life. Janáček's music is a fascinating symbiosis of vocal and orchestral sound, and it is witty, romantic and harsh.

Running time is indicative, as the dress rehearsal is still due for the production.

Première September 21, 2024
