A new production of Dvořák’s opera featuring Natalya Romaniw comes to the Edinburgh International Festival, with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Douglas Boyd and Garsington Opera.
Rusalka is the haunting fable of a water sprite who sacrifices everything when she falls in love with a human prince. She enlists the help of a witch, entering the mortal world and giving up her voice to be with him – only to discover the true cost of love is greater still. Inspired by sources including Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, Dvořák’s sensual opera shimmers with glinting orchestral colours. Sound and silence reverberate against each other as soaring romantic melodies sweep through the eerie quiet. Reality and the supernatural collide in luscious evocations of the natural world.
Performed in Czech with English supertitles
