Start time 5.40pm. This production contains two intervals.
Insight Talk - Tuesday 5 May, 6.30pm, London

The water spirit Rusalka sacrifices everything, including her voice, to follow the Prince she loves into the human world. Her silence comes between them in a powerful and poignant fable.

Dvořák’s best-loved opera is an intoxicating combination of folk tunes, courtly dances and soaringly romantic melodies, shimmering with watery light and glinting darkness, including the beautifully emotional ‘Song to the Moon’. Natalya Romaniw (Eugene Onegin, 2016 and The Bartered Bride, 2019) sings the title role of this new production, 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.
