Woebegone water sprite
Soprano Renee Fleming sings her first Met “Live in HD” performance of one of her signature roles, the title character in Dvorak’s Rusalka. The Metropolitan Opera performance screens at 11:55 a.m. Feb. 8 at Cinemark 15 Vista Ridge Mall in Lewisville. The opera is about a water spirit’s tragic romance with a human prince. It’s drawn from several folk tales, including Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid.” Conductor Yannick Nezet-Segu leads a cast that includes Piotr Beczala as the handsome Prince Rusalka, who yearns to love; Dolora Zajick as the swamp witch Jezibaba; Emily Magee as the foreign princess and John Relyea as Rusalka’s father. Fleming has sung the role of Rusalka more than any other artist in Met history. Susan Graham hosts. Running time is about 4 hours, including two intermissions. Tickets cost $24 for adults, $22 for seniors and $16 for children. For tickets, visit www.cinemark.com/met-opera-rusalka-(2014)
