What are people saying?

  • Aaken's rating of the film The Cunning Little Vixen

    A lovely animated version of Janáček's opera. The work has been abridged and conductor Kent Nagano asked the singers to do 'vocal acting', perhaps to make the experience less demanding for the young audience. The visual style is simple and charming, certainly as Dunbar tried to stay true to the original newspaper cartoon that inspired Janáček. Not for the purists, but a perfect introduction to the opera.
