Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Snow Maiden

Saturday, April 20, 2013

For this Saturday’s cartoon we feature Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Dance of the Clowns” from his opera The Snow Maiden. There is a 1952 animated film by Ivan Ivanov-Vano and Alexandra Snezhko-Blotskaya that is based on this opera and features much of the music.

“Dance of the Clowns” can be heard around 45 minutes into the video.
