Opera re­turns to Syd­ney

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

The opera re­turns to Cape Breton open­ing later this month with a live show­ing of An­toine Dvorák’s “Rusalka” from New York City’s Metropoli­tan Opera on Feb. 25.

The show­ing will take place at Cine­plex Cin­e­mas Syd­ney at 1:55 p.m., Satur­day, Feb. 25, and is part of The Met: Live in HD series.

Kris­tine Opo­lais plays the myth­i­cal Rusalka, a role that vaulted her to star­dom and helped to launch her ca­reer in­ter­na­tion­ally through her haunt­ing ren­di­tion of the clas­sic “Song to the Moon.”

Rusalka had its world pre­miere at the Na­tional The­atre in Prague in 1901. The pro­duc­tion is as an ex­am­ple of late Ro­man­ti­cism — con­tain­ing folk­lore, and evo­ca­tions of the nat­u­ral and the su­per­nat­u­ral worlds.

Verdi’s “La Travi­ata” will fol­low Satur­day, March 11, at 1:55 p.m. Other op­eras be­ing fea­tured this spring in­clude Mozart’s “Idome­neo” on Satur­day, March 25, 1: 55 p.m.; Tchaikovsky’s “Eu­gene One­gin” on April 22, 1:55 p.m. and Strauss’s “Der Rosenkavalier” in Ger­man on May 13, 1:30 p.m.

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion for each per­for­mance is $28 for ages 1464, $27 for se­niors over 65 and $27 for chil­dren, 3-13.

For three or more tick­ets, it’s $26.60 for each ticket, $25.20 each for five tick­ets and $23.80 each for eight tick­ets.
