Our experience was excellent. "Rusalka" is one of the most beautiful operas we have ever seen. The music is gorgeous, the story, for once, is logical, easy to follow and very moving, the singing (and acting) was first-rate, and the staging was imaginative and appropriate to the story. What more could you ask? Oh, and one more thing. The orchestra sounded terrific. All in all, a great evening. We'd go back to see it again.
