Rusalka, a beautiful water nymph, falls in love with a prince, sacrificing her voice in return for entry into his human world. But betrayal condemns her to eternal solitude. Dvorak juxtaposes the mortal and the mythical with beautiful folk melodies and luminous arias, including Rusalka’s heartbreaking “Song to the Moon.” Kelly Kaduce returns to the stage in a reprisal of Minnesota Opera’s critically acclaimed production.
Preliminary run time of 3 hours and 1 minute, including two intermissions.
Sung in Czech with English translations projected above the stage
