“Renée Fleming and Ben Heppner are dream recording voices who have also benefited from the experience of playing the same roles opposite each other on stage in the US. The other singers are well cast, too, and Sir Charles Mackerras and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra have the music in their blood.” – Gramophone Magazine

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.
