Galleries Are Small
While bijou in size, the Bruno Walter Gallery at Avery Fisher Hall is currently exploding with materials that celebrate the collaborative projects between the New York Philharmonic and Giants Are Small, the creative dynamos behind our productions of Le Grand Macabre (May 2010) and The Cunning Little Vixen (June 2011), leading up to the upcoming A Dancer’s Dream (June 27–29). Gear up for our colorful and imaginative season finale with this exhibition featuring props, production photos, costumes, and sketches, on view now through the end of June.

Tonight’s performance of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen is officially SOLD-OUT. Don’t miss your last opportunity to hear this great work tomorrow night, June 25.
In this video from the first of the New York Philharmonic’s four performances of Vixen — conducted by Music Director Alan Gilbert, and directed and designed by Doug Fitch — Vixen Sharp-Ears (sung by soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian), whom the Forester has captured to be a pet, is tormented by the Forester’s children and, after being leashed, dreams of being a free woman (dancer Emily Wagner).

Photos from the New York Philharmonic’s The Cunning Little Vixen.
The forest comes alive when the tiniest creatures put on a concert — with a slight interruption by a pesky mosquito (Keith Jameson). The Vixen, who has been tied up by the Forester, exhorts the chickens to “build a better world” where are all equal. The Orchestra plays amid a field of 20 foot-high, majestic sunflowers. And the Vixen and Fox, played by Isabel Bayrakdarian and Marie Lenormand, respectively, sing some of what Opera News called “the most opulently passionate music this side of ‘Tristan’ on their love scene… the delight they took in their stage shenanigans and invigorating love affair served as a springboard for their glorious vocal flights.”
