"O Mother Spring, be kind, and give me a bit of ardent sunshine and flame. To warm this poor cold heart of mine!" - Snegourotchka, Act I, Scene 2
Based on a Slavic legend, this magical fantasy follows Snegurochka (young soprano sensation Aida Garifullina), born in times of old in Tsar Berendey’s mythical kingdom, the fruit of the union between Spring the Beauty and Grandfather Frost. She bears a tragic secret, her heart is made of ice, and if warmed by human love, it will melt...
