The cunning little vixen. At the end of The Cunning Little Vixen, the forester muses on the wonder of the eternal renewal of nature. The 68-year-old Leoš Janáček drew his inspiration for this dazzling opera from a ‘strip cartoon’ on the joys and sorrows of the vixen Bystroushka that appeared in a newspaper in Brno in 1920. This ‘Czech Midsummer Night’s Dream’, in which, like Shakespeare, he poetically entwines fantasy and reality, is his most cheerful and youthful opera.
