Description

Rusalka, a water sprite, falls in love with a human prince and strikes an impossible bargain to enter his world. But this is no Disney mermaid. Dark consequences flood Dvorák’s moonlit fairy tale, along with music of acute longing, hope and disillusionment. Rusalka’s Song to the Moon just might break your heart.

Sung in Czech with projected English translation.
