A Vixen's Tale

Enter the world of The Cunning Little Vixen with this augmented reality (AR) experience from the Welsh National Opera.

Follow the Vixen through the seasons and meet some of her friends in this large-scale installation.

It’s a fusion of music, theatre and innovative digital technology.

In a world that springs to life like a pop-up book, get inspired by Leos Janácek’s music and the cycle of nature.

A Vixen's Tale features music from The Cunning Little Vixen, an opera in three acts by Leos Janácek.

The revised version by Jiri Zahrádka is presented by arrangement with Universal Edition A G Wien.

WNO’s Snapchat filter features Bezi liska Tábouru and appears courtesy of Decca Classics.

Illustrations are by Xavier Segers and the experience was created by ARCADE.

You can follow the vixen at #WNOfollowthevixen.
