Opera Naples Summer Opera Film Series Features RUSALKA With Asmik Grigorian and Eric Cutler

Opera Naples, one of Naples' leading performing arts organizations, will be featuring "Rusalka" (Teatro Real) with Asmik Grigorian and Eric Cutler during its summer film series of classic European operas, HD at Opera Naples. Screening will take place at 3 p.m. on Oct. 5, shown on the Wang Opera Center's expansive high-definition LED theater screen. Adult tickets are $22; student tickets are $10. Free popcorn will be provided, as well as refreshments available with donations accepted.

The final film of the summer opera series, "Elektra" (Salzburg Festival) with Aušriné Stundyté, Asmik Grigorian, and Tanja Ariane Baumgartner, will be shown on Oct. 19. To reserve tickets today, contact 239-963-9050 or visit OperaNaples.org.

The libretto of the most well-known opera by Antonín Dvořak is inspired by the Czech version of the Central European folktale, Undine (1811) or The Little Mermaid (1837). The original story is perfectly translated into a musical score full of color and magic, expertly conducted by Ivor Bolton, while Christof Loy's stage direction and scenography by Johannes Leiacker beautifully complement Klevis Elmazaj's masterful choreography. The mesmerizing Asmik Grigorian brings vibrant life to the title role as Eric Cutler and Karita Mattila step smoothly into the royal personas of prince and princess.

HD at Opera Naples is generously underwritten by John and Nicky Pepe, and sponsored by YB Productions.
