Dvořák's score is an intoxicating combination of folk tunes, courtly dances and soaringly romantic melodies which shummer with a dark, glinting beauty. The water spirit Rusalka risks everything to follow the man she loves into the human world in a powerful and poignant tale of romance, love and loss. Natalya Romaniw (Eugene Onegin, 2016 and The Bartered Bride, 2019) returns in the title role with Michael Boyd (Eugene Onegin, 2016, Pelléas et Mélisande, 2017 and Don Giovanni, 2019) directing and Douglas Boyd conducting.
Sung in Czech with English supertitles.
