Chelsea Opera Group - Christmas Eve (Rimsky-Korsakov)

Chelsea Opera Group - Christmas Eve (Rimsky-Korsakov)

Sunday, December 10, 2017 - 19:00

Concert performance in English.

This captivating opera involves a warm-hearted witch, an altruistic Devil and a reckless quest for the slippers worn by the Russian tsarina.

This is no ordinary Christmas Eve. At its heart is a love story. Rimsky-Korsakov applies all his gifts of local, folk-inflected colour, acuteness of character, musical invention and scintillating orchestration, bringing to life an array of village oddballs and a scenario that bristles with vitality, magic and a thoroughly Russian atmosphere of enchantment.
