OPERA: Dvořak & Kvapil: Rusalka

A mermaid leaves her element and sacrifices her voice to live the love for a human being. A young man meets a strange female being, seems to overcome boundaries in his fascination for the unknown and - trapped in conventions - finally cannot allow a real encounter. Only in death do the two find each other. At the interface of intellect and feeling, consciousness and subconsciousness, dream and reality, Dvořaks creates the most successful opera, premiered in Prague in 1901, from the rich fund of fairy tales and myths of European Romanticism. In enchanting melodies, characteristic rhythms and colourful sensual sounds rooted in Slavic folk music, the work poses questions that have lost none of their topicality: Questions about one's own identity, about the limitation of living and freedom spaces, about the relationship between man and nature.
