Dvořák´s Rusalka is a true gem of Czech opera

Czech original version with English surtitles 

The composer’s ardent melodies, both tender and dramatically extreme, his masterful work with musical motifs and full-blooded orchestration, together with Jaroslav Kvapil’s fairy-tale libretto, make Rusalka a work of fascinating beauty addressing audiences of all ages.

There is no doubt that the fantastic story and the characters of the nymphs, water goblin or the witch are of a fairy-tale nature, yet in its fairy-tale scenes, Dvořák’s paramount operatic work bears a profound message about the fundamental order of powers, elements, energies and passions in the natural, therefore also human, world.
