Collaboration between Comic Opera Helsinki, Silent Opera (UK) and Helsinki Festival
Put on your headphones and follow the red-headed girl.
Opera comes to life at Konepajan Bruno in August. Vixen, based on Czech composer Leoš Janáček’s classic opera The Cunning Little Vixen, combines beloved opera music, immersive theatre and silent disco. This unforgettable tale of love and loss is told using, for the first time in Finland, the silent opera concept that has attracted full houses in Great Britain and made a host of new opera fans.
Turning opera conventions upside down, Vixen is a co-production between Silent Opera and Koominen Ooppera. Silent Opera is supported by the English National Opera. In the performance that takes over the old railway engine workshop, the audience, using headphones, gets to follow the characters and experience the music right next to the singers as it is mixed live.
