"Rusalka"

Antonin Dvorak

Mermaid Rusalka is sad. She confesses to the merman that she longs to receive a human soul - something that no person under the sea possesses. She has fallen with a human prince who often comes to the lake to swim there. It is because of him that she longs to be human and to receive a soul. With the help of it she wants to win him of over. The merman however cautions the enamoured against the human world, but in vain.

Premiere 2011.
