The tale of a quick-witted fox and her escape from confinement for a life in the forest that is by turns joyful and violent, The Cunning Little Vixen is Janáček’s lightest opera, containing some of his most enchanting music, featuring both human and animal characters. It's a comic opera with a sad ending” (Janáček) - based on a newspaper cartoon strip, with strong folk-music influences.
