Relaxed Performance - The Cunning Little Vixen

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

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

Our Relaxed Performances are also suitable for those with sensory sensitivities. We will make adjustments to the lights and sound of the performance, such as removing sudden loud noises, and the House lights won’t go down as much as they normally would.

If you need a break, a chill out space will be provided. We will also have the show available to watch outside of the auditorium on a screen.

This would include anyone with dementia, an autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders or learning disability.

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)

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.
