JANÁČEK - The Cunning Little Vixen

The autumn 2017 European Tour includes an extended itinerary, with concerts in Hamburg, Linz, Luxembourg, Paris, and Vienna, and features special encore performances of the Orchestra’s ground-breaking 2014 production of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen directed by Yuval Sharon. Two performances of this production, which blends together live singers with projected animation, will be presented at Vienna’s Musikverein; this will be the first time an opera has ever been presented in a staged production format at the historic concert hall. Of this production, The New York Times “… the Cleveland ‘Vixen,’ performed at the orchestra’s spectacularly resonant home theater, Severance Hall, was designed to return attention to the opera’s action while still highlighting one of the world’s great orchestras.”
