Janacek's opera, inspired by the 1920s cartoon strip Vixen Sharpears, returns to its roots in the hands of innovative animator Geoff Dunbar, whose award-winning films include Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of Mr Tod and Paul McCartney's Rupert and the Frog Song.

With its new sound track recorded by Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester and singers from the European Opera Centre, the story of Sharpears unfolds a tale of love, death and rebirth which will appeal to audiences of all ages.
