Opera, Sat 14 Mar 2020


Barnes Music Festival


Church Road,
SW13 9HL


The Cunning Little Vixen is nearly one hundred years old and yet its themes couldn’t be more relevant to today’s world. Janacek’s opera explores the delicate symbiotic relationship humans have with other living things and the environment, as well as questioning human moral responsibility and the dangers we face when we hurt nature, all told through the escapades of a particularly-adventurous fox. Think Wind in the Willows meets Extinction Rebellion. This magical, timeless story will be fully staged and expect an evening of singing, acting, dance and puppetry.

After the sell-out production of Turn of the Screw in 2020, Riverside Opera returns to the Barnes Music Festival. Artistic Director, James Day joins forces with Director Will Ashford and a cast of singers (to be announced in early 2020) comprised of rising stars in the international opera world.
