La Fille de Neige (Snegurochka) – ONP

 

Snegurochka was born in times of old in Tsar Berendey’s mythical kingdom, the fruit of the union between Spring
the Beauty and Grandfather Frost. Protected by her parents from the jealousy of the Sun god Yarilo who has vowed to warm her heart when she gets older and falls in love, Snegurochka the snow maiden is entrusted to the wood sprite… Particularly attached to the opera which he himself considered to be a work of maturity, Rimsky‑Korsakov would write ten years after its creation that: “anyone who fails to love The Snow Maiden understands nothing of my works nor of myself”.

A masterpiece of popular Slavic literature, The Snow Maiden brings to the stage a magical fantasy enriched by the
rigours of the weather. Aida Garifullina sings the role of Snegurochka whilst the production and musical direction
have been left in the capable hands of two other Russian artists: the young conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov and director Dmitri Tcherniakov.
