“The Cunning Little Vixen”: U-M Music School Voice Department.:
Nov. 3-6. Tara Faircloth directs U-M voice students in Janacek’s masterful 1924 opera about a female fox’s journey through childhood, captivity, escape, childbearing, and old age. The action, which includes both human and animal characters, achieves a fine balance between the cute and funny with a hard-edged realism. Sung in Czech, with English supertitles, the music is distinguished by its folk-inspired rhythms and motifs. 8 p.m. (Thurs.-Sat.) & 2 p.m. (Sun.), Power Center. Tickets $33 in advance at tickets.smtd.umich.edu & the Michigan League Box Office, and at the door. 764–0583., . . . . . .
