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. This production is a presentation of an original production by Welsh National Opera.

Performers Susan Gritton (Vixen), Sarah Connolly (Fox), David Kempster (Poacher), Peter Coleman-Wright (Forester), Mark Le Brocq (Schoolmaster), Mark Beesley (Parson), Iain Paterson (Badger).
