About

In few words:

Hide me from the Sun. The terrible radiance of its cruel rays frightens me. Save your Snow Flower! Rimsky Korsakov’s third opera is rooted in the magical fantasy world of popular Slavic legends. A love child of the Spring Fairy and old Winter, Snegurochka is sent to the mythical kingdom of Tsar Berendey to round off her knowledge of the world. Whilst there, she will discover the desire to love which will ultimately lead to her own demise under the rays of the sun god. The story abounds with the symbolism associated with sexual awakening and pagan rituals—recurrent sources of inspiration for the arts at the end of the 19th century.
To translate the fantastical world of this initiatory tale, the composer makes use of all the resources of the orchestra and draws on the colours of Russian folk music. By setting the action in a world that seems to have emerged out of his childhood memories, Dmitri Tcherniakov taps into the tale’s allegorical nature to progressively blur the line between dream and reality.
