'Rusalka' shows at local theaters

Art Snob Blog

Fresh from the Superbowl, where she sung the National Anthem, Renee Fleming stars in the title role of Dvorak's water nymph, Rusalka, in the live-from the Metropolitan Opera big-screen showings at theaters. Anchorage opera fans can see the show at Century 16 or Regal Tikahtnu theaters at 12:55 p.m. Saturday.

An encore presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, and it appears that some Alaska theaters may be taking a third showing on Thursday, though I can't quite decipher the listings this far out.

If you miss the big screen version, or want to hear it again for free, KLEF radio will broadcast the same production at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
