One of Dvorak’s finest operas
Rusalka was performed for the first time in Prague in 1901 to critical acclaim. Its central character, Rusalka, is a water nymph who falls in love with a human prince and decides that she wants to turn human in order to be with him. A witch gives her the option of becoming human but in doing so she will lose the power of speech and immortality – and, furthermore, if she doesn’t win his love, he will die and she will become eternally damned. Rusalka agrees to take this risky chance. But what will happen in this tale of betrayal, love and loss? Told through arresting music and beautiful melodies, audiences are transported through a magical world of wood sprites, water nymphs, witches and goblins to find out what happens to Rusalka and her quest to win the prince’s love.
