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. Sung in Czech with surtitlesPerformers Ailish Tynan (Vixen), Robert Poulton (Forester), Frances Bourne (Fox), Wynne Evans (Schoolmaster/Ccck), Carol Rowlands (Owl/Wife), Tim Dawkins (Parson/Badger), David Stout (Harasta), Gary Griffiths (Dog/Innkeeper).
