Vaults, London / Helsinki Comic Opera / Beijing Music Festival
Silent Opera's immersive reimagining of Janáček’s classic opera, Cunning Little Vixen at The Vaults.
Vixen is a young runaway girl on the streets of London. As she begs for help, she is abducted by a man known as The Forester. But as she tries to escape, she becomes the hunted, in a world that has no place for her.
The story unfolds as you explore the uniquely designed space, with singers appearing in front of you, beside you and behind you. In each area you can take a seat and have everything flow around you or remove your headphones for that up close and personal experience of great opera voices.
This is a 360º experience, where opera and great storytelling come to life.
