Lyric Fairytale in three acts | Text by Jaroslav Kvapil | In Czech with German supertitles

Rusalka is a fairytale for adults that tells the story of longing for another world. Dvorák and ­Kvapil (his ­librettist) were inspired not only by Slavic ­myths, but also by de la Motte Fouqués’ Undine, and ­Andersen’s Little Mermaid. They tell their story from the ­perspective of a creature of nature, into whose world Man callously intrudes. It is one of the most well-known Czech operas, and although the “Song to the Moon” is its most famous excerpt, Dvorák’s entire score is filled with magical soundscapes and fragile beauty.
