CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
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. New Production - Supported by the Opera North Foundation. Sung in English. Sponsored by Manchester Airport. Running time approx. 2 hours.
