Antonín Dvorák’s next to last opera Rusalka draws its substance from the underwater wonderland of little mermaids, Undines and Melusines: Rusalka, a water nymph, wishes to become human in order to be loved by the young prince, with ultimately sad and tragic results for both characters. Jaroslav Kvapil’s libretto inspired Dvorák to compose a masterpiece, a compelling opera full of poignant lyricism and dramatic twists. In this widely acclaimed interpretation, Ádám Fisher and Stefan Herheim masterfully presented this ‘lyrical fairytale’ at La Monnaie.
