An immersive, visually stunning experience.

This made-for-Cleveland production of The Cunning Little Vixen stunned Severance Hall audiences in 2014.  Now, don’t miss the return of this high-tech production, which radically transforms the concert hall through the projection of original digital animation onto three giant 26-foot screens wrapping around stage and orchestra.  Not merely a backdrop, these projections immerse you in a living, dynamic world that interacts with an internationally renowned cast and Janáček’s magical score for a seamless blend of animation and outstanding live performance.

Information and background about the music are printed in program books distributed free-of-charge at most Cleveland Orchestra concerts. The program notes are usually available on-line ahead of time (see links below).
