Why See Metropolitan Opera: Rusalka?

Classical & Opera

Mary Zimmerman directs Dvorak's opera

The Little Mermaid meets the brothers Grimm in this soulful fairytale from Antonin Dvorak. In a brand new production for the met, Mary Zimmerman imagines a hauntingly romantic world in which the water nymph Rusalka leaves the confines of her lake home in search of the love of a prince, at the cost of all she holds dear. Sonya Yoncheva stars alongside Eric Owens and Piotr Beczaa.

Song to the moon: The story of Rusalka

In the depths of a lively lake, Rusalka, water nymph and daughter of the ruling water sprite, bemoans her fate. Her eye has been caught by a dashing prince, but being a nymph she cannot have him. Going against the wishes of her father, she consults with the witch Jezibaba, who teaches her a spell to become mortal. The only caveat; she will be mute and, therefore unable to express her love. If the Prince betrays her, they'll both be damned for eternity. Of course, she takes her chances, which throw her into an adventure of jealousy, exile, love and redemption that will change her forever more.
