Relaxed Performance: The Cunning Little Vixen

Enjoy a performance of The Cunning Little Vixen in a relaxed environment.

26 Feb 2022

In the wild, we return to our true nature.

The relaxed performance of The Cunning Little Vixen will take place on 26 February 2022 at 14.30

This performance is ideal for anyone who benefits from a more relaxed environment, from being able to make noise, leave and enter the auditorium as you please, or access toilets or chill-out areas during the performance. This would include anyone with dementia, an autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders or learning disability.

About The Cunning Little Vixen

The Cunning Little Vixen can be seen as a light-hearted story about a mischievous fox, and the antics she gets up to in the forest. It can also be viewed as composer Leos Janáček exploring the fairy tale genre, blending comedy with tragedy, and leading to a touching philosophical reflection on the nature of life and death.

The fox finds herself taken home by a forester to be kept as a pet as a little cub. The opera follows her into adulthood, as she seeks to escape the forester and what happens after.

What you can expect from this Relaxed Performance?

  • The lights in the audience will be slightly dimmed so that it’s not too dark
  • You can make noise during the show
  • You can go in and out of the auditorium as you please
  • If you need a break there are chill out areas
  • We make small changes to the lights and sound (such as removing loud or sudden sound effects and taking out strobes lights)
