Programme Note
Igor Stravinsky Renard (1916)

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.
