Specific information available for subscribers.
Full title: Fable of the Fox, the Cock, the Tomcat and the Ram / Reynard (Bayka pro lisu, petukha, kota da barana / Renard).
For staging: clowns, dancers and acrobats, who mime the action; the singers sit in the small orchestra.
A part for piano (as substitute for the cimbalom) is available with the Chester rental parts; it is of uncertain provenance. It replaces the cimbalom, but the music is retouched to be more pianistic.
