Russian Double Bill

Speaking of small-scale opera companies in New York, this week also brings the 2013 production of Opera Slavica, the company devoted to Eastern European opera.  This year’s performance is a double bill of Prokofiev’s first, and Tchaikovsky‘s last opera, ie Maddalena & Iolanta, respectively…

Just two performances, tomorrow and the day after (at Bohemian National Hall, appropriately enough), so Czech it out!  HA!

And if you miss these performances, being one-act operas, there are some full videos available on Youtube, including this Maddalena from Rostov-on-Don, Russia, and a full-out Soviet film of Iolanta…  OSTALGIA FOREVER!
