Lyrics by Janacek after Tesnohlidek. Title can also be translated as The Adventures of Vixen Sharp Ears
. The adventures of the Vixen as she escapes captivity, finds a mate, gives birth and dies represent the universal cycle of life, played out with a supporting cast of birds and insects. The creatures of the forest and farmyard are tellingly compared with the human community to create a moving yet optimistic reflection on the challenges and joys of existence.Performers Emma Matthews (Vixen Sharp-Ears), Emma Bell (Fox), Christopher Maltman (Gamekeeper), Matthew Rose (Harasta), Robin Leggate (Schoolmaster/Mosquito), Jermey White (Priest/Badger), Alasdair Elliott (Pasek the Innkeeper), Elizabeth Sikora (Innkeeper's Wife), Simona Mihai (Pepik), Elizabeth Cragg (Frantik), Elisabeth Meister (Rooster/Jay), Gerald Thompson (Dachshund), Madeleine Shaw (Forester's Wife/Screech Owl).
