Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

Dvorak’s enchanting fairytale of the water-nymph Rusalka has been a signature role for Renee Fleming for the past 25 years. Here at last – in sumptuous HD – is the Metropolitan Opera production by the late Gunther Schneider- Siemssen and directed by Otto Schenk. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducts with “sensitivity and urgency” (Financial Times) and the cast includes Piotr Beczala “wonderful as the Prince, his tenor elegant and impassioned” (New York Times).
