http://www.leosjanacek.co.uk/vixen.htm is the descriptive synopsis of this opera. If you love the forest and its creatures, and if you love beautiful orchestration, then I recommend this film. The 98 minutes went by quickly because the production is such a delight. Costumes, staging and scenery changes, the dancing, the imaginative interaction of human animals with their longer life cycles and the forest creatures was all enchanting. It impressed me with the modernity of its music and libretto, which is to say that it had a vitality and complexity attuned to today's sensibilities.

{a list in progress}: GC's 'Music' and 'Music Videos/Performance' genres return tons of entries, mostly pop, but still omit a lot. Here's what I find (1/08) of 'classical' opera & ballet, loosely defined, but excluding purely instrumental performances.
