Soprano Keri Alkema dropped by the “Classical Mornings” studio to chat with Mike and Jean about her upcoming appearance as the Foreign Princess (role debut) in the Canadian Opera Company’s production of Rusalka, the story based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid”. This production is conducted by Johannes Debus and stars Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role.
Keri chatted about the challenge of singing in Czech (versus Italian which is so much easier for singers), going blonde and switching up her makeup, and the lush sets and ballet dancers!
Listen to the interview here:
Rusalka opens at the Canadian Opera Company this Saturday, October 12, and runs until October 26. All performances take place at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts on Queen Street at University. For tickets and info, please click here.
