“The Cunning Little Vixen” Gives Undergraduate Opera Students a Chance to Shine

CCM Undergraduate Opera students gain experience in Janáček’s reflective opera The Cunning Little Vixen, playing at 8 p.m. in the Cohen Family Studio Theater on April 1 & 2. The opera, which was adapted from a daily newspaper comic strip, is an anthropomorphic fable that jumps from the human to the animal world. In the human realm, the protagonists fret about loneliness and isolation, lost youth and old age. Janáček uses the animals to pay homage to the amazing beauty and power of nature and marvel at the natural cycle of birth, love and death.
