a vixen’s tale

A Vixen’s Tale is a mixed physical and digital installation, commissioned by Welsh National Opera (WNO), that transports audiences into a pop-up-book-style world to discover Leoš Janáček’s opera, “The Cunning Little Vixen”.

Fusing together music and theatre with augmented reality, visitors ‘follow the vixen’ through a series of gamified vignettes, each unlocking a section of the story.

The dramatic experience plays out across a series of five beautifully crafted wooden arches that represent the passing of time and the vixen’s emotional narrative arc.

Made primarily for attracting new audiences to opera, this AR installation uses play to integrate digital innovation with theatre and create a unique, delightful and hugely rewarding approach to immersive storytelling.
