This Bayerische Staatsoper production of Dvorák’s fairy-tale opera Rusalka features soprano Kristine Opolais, whose performance was hailed as "one of the most vivid and striking accomplishments seen on an opera stage in a long time" (Vienna's daily Der Standard).

"…it's superbly done and is notable for a brave, perhaps career-best performance from Kristine Opolais in the title role.” - The Guardian

Antonín Dvorák’s Rusalka

Dvorák’s soulful take on the “Little Mermaid” story is a romantic fairy tale full of genuine emotion and lush melodies, including the title character’s enchanting “Song to the Moon.” First seen in Prague in 1901, Rusalka is one of the few Czech operas to hold a permanent place in the international repertoire.
