Silent Opera presents Vixen, an immersive production that premieres in The Vault Theatre.
Put your headphones on, follow the girl and experience an innovative and highly original take on an epic opera… Silent Opera, featuring live singers and musicians mixed with a pre-recorded orchestra delivered directly into individual headsets, is opera as never experienced before. Hidden beneath the hustle and bustle of Waterloo station, join the Vixen as she fights to to survive the highs and lows of urban life.
With the support of the world-renowned English National Opera, Silent Opera presents Vixen, a reimagining of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen – an unforgettable tale of love, life and loss – performed in English. Combining modern technology with live music, the audience are immersed in the vivid imagination of one of opera’s most beloved composers as the creatures of the forest come to life and turn convention on its head.
Founded by Artistic Director Daisy Evans in 2010, Silent Opera combines audio technology with spoken word, live music and sound manipulation – this is opera re-imagined in every sense. Silent Opera opens a door into the fascinating, glittering world of the opera, inviting new and inquisitive audiences to experience the heights of musical emotion first hand.
Vixen plays The Vaults Theatre on 26 May – 10 June. For more information or to book tickets, please see the website.
