Opera at the Movies

Posted at 3:55 PM on June 29, 2006 by Rex Levang

Following up on Bob's post: In the opera "Rusalka" the Song to the Moon is sung by a non-human creature (in this case, a sort of mermaid) who has fallen in love with a human being.

I haven't seen "Bicentennial Man," so maybe someone call fill me in. Are there any parallels between the opera and the movie?
