The Cunning Creative of THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXENBy COC StaffPosted in 24/24 Season[READ MORE]
Against the grey backdrop of a Toronto winter, an entire forest of colourful creatures has taken up residence downtown, as the Canadian Opera Company presents The Cunning Little Vixen by Leoš Janáček. The opera, making its first appearance in more than 25 years on the COC stage, follows a young female fox—our title Vixen—as she is captured then breaks free… with a little help from her friends.
