- Running time125 minutes
Perhaps the only opera to be inspired by a newspaper cartoon strip, The Cunning Little Vixen features a cast of animal characters in a depiction of rural life that is rich in both humour and humanity.
This new production of Janáček’s final opera is directed by Melly Still, who made her operatic directing debut at Glyndebourne in 2009.
Rising British sopranos Emma Bell and Lucy Crowe make their Glyndebourne Festival debuts as the Vixen and the Fox respectively.
Live: Since 1934 an interval of 90 minutes has been part of the Glyndebourne experience. Time enough for a three-course meal and a walk through the grounds, it became a tradition long before broadcasting opera to cinema audiences was ever conceived.
For the many people now enjoying opera at the cinema, 30 minutes is a more realistic length of time to take a break. 'Live from Glyndebourne' means that we start our cinema transmissions a little after curtain-up at Glyndebourne and, by the end of the interval, we have caught up, joining Glyndebourne live for the remaining acts and curtain-down.
