Blurring the boundaries between the human and animal experience, The Cunning Little Vixen follows the story of a sharp, young, female fox (a vixen) and the gamekeeper who tries to control her. Inspired by a comic strip, this Czech opera by Leoš Janáček explores the ways in which human beings interact with the natural world while hinting at the underlying forces that govern us all.

Under the direction of Craig Kier, Maryland Opera Studio (MOS) is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, they are building audiences and advancing the art that sustains them.

Sung in Czech with English supertitles.

In addition to the MOS singers, this performance features undergraduate students from UMD Choral Activities and M.F.A. design students from the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.
