Programme Note

The simple folk tale is related by four singers sitting with and treated as members of the orchestra, while being enacted by the dancers. It tells how a wicked fox tricks a cock to come down from his perch. The cock is rescued by a cat and a goat, the rescue is celebrated and, at the end, the fox is killed.
