Vixen lives by her instincts and by her wits. Something about her strikes a chord in the Gamekeeper. They first meet when she is just a cub. He takes her captive, but she soon breaks free and sets about finding a home and the fox of her dreams. As animals, insects and people take their chances and make their choices, or simply watch the world go by, Nature renews its miraculous, eternal cycle.

Energised by Janáček’s exuberant rhythms, The Cunning Little Vixen captures the joys, thrills, fears and sorrows of our existence – whether or not we have a tail.
