Cast Announcement – The Cunning Little Vixen presented by Pacific Opera

Coming soon in October, Laura is to play the Rooster and Woodpecker as well as being the understudy for Vixen Sharp Ears in  Pacific Opera’s The Cunning Little Vixen By Leoš Janáček. To by tickets please visit Pacific Opera.

One of greatest operas of the 20th century The Cunning Little Vixen is a philosophical reflection on the uneasiness of man’s relationship with the natural world and his own nature. Told through the intertwining stories of a beautifully glorious vixen and the Forester who attempts to tame and contain her, the opera is at once playful and charming,  sexy and deeply tragic.

 

Janáček’s opera was first performed in 1924 and was based on a comic strip story. It was inspired by his study of animals and his undying, unrequited love of a much younger woman. With a huge romantic score it is lush, dramatic and intense.

 

Under the baton of internationally renowned conductor Alex Briger, multi-award winning director Michael Campbell and performed by Pacific Opera’s cast of outstanding young singers, the opera will be performed with a children’s chorus from Sydney Grammar School and in full symphonic glory with the Sydney Youth Orchestra.
