Leo Janá ek's opera "The Cunning Little Vixen" ("P íhody li ky Bystrou ky") is somewhat difficult to describe, said Opera to Go's artistic director William Todd Hunt. Based on a serialized comic novella by Rudolf T snohlídek (illustrated by Stanislav Lolek) that first appeared in a Czech newspaper in the 1920s, the opera features multiple roles for animals, including the vixen of the title as well as a fox, badger, frog and mosquito, among many other creatures.
