Rusalka, A Mermaid's Tale
In 2017-18, OFTY will perform 200 shows in elementary schools throughout the upper Midwest.
Set on a Caribbean coral reef, our "Rusalka" is a 45-minute adaptation. (Score adapted by Jeffrey Sykes and libretto adapted by Diane Garton Edie.) Each role (S, M, T, B) will be triple cast: Soprano (Rusalka), Mezzo (Jezibaba & Foreign Princess), tenor (Prince), and bass baritone (Sea King). Cast includes three coach/accompanists.
Cast members drive the tour van, load and unload set pieces, and field audience questions. Additionally, they train student performers. There are typically two shows per day/7-10 shows per week. Compensation is $55 - $60 per show plus $28 per diem and travel/lodging while on tour. In addition, each artist receives lodging and $375 for the rehearsal period which runs for a week in mid-October 2017. The tour runs October 2017 to mid-May 2018 with a two month holiday break. Due to each role being triple cast, artists generally are on tour 5-8 weeks.
