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 and soaring romantic melodies, shimmering with watery light and glinting darkness, including the sublime Song to the Moon .
Natalya Romaniw sings the title role in this new production, relocated from 2020, with Jack Furness directing and Douglas Boyd conducting.
