Music by Antonín Dvořák
A mermaid's journey for human love.
The water nymph Rusalka wants nothing more than to live on land with the Prince. To get her wish, she agrees to a fateful spell by a witch. In Dvořák’s hands, the timeless fairy tale of a woman who trades her voice for love is rendered in a powerful, otherworldly fable—a drama of shadowy depths, fervent love songs and endings that may not be what they seem. Enter an enchanting world full of immortal spirits, dark magic and haunting melodies.
