Kristine Opolais stars in the role that helped launch her
international career, the mythical Rusalka, who sings the haunting
“Song to the Moon.” Mary Zimmerman brings her wondrous theatrical
imagination to Dvořák’s fairytale of love and longing, rejection and
redemption. Brandon Jovanovich, Jamie Barton, Katarina Dalayman, and
Eric Owens complete the all-star cast, and Mark Elder conducts.

World premiere: National Theater, Prague, 1901. The only one of
Dvořák’s operas to gain an international following (so far), Rusalka
is in many ways a definitive example of late Romanticism—containing
folklore, evocations of the natural and the supernatural worlds, and
even a poignant interpretation of the idea of a love-death. The
story has a strong national flavor as well as universal appeal,
infused by the Romantic supernaturalism of Friedrich de la Motte
Fouqué’s novella Undine (previously set as an opera by E.T.A.
Hoffmann, Tchaikovsky, and others) and Hans Christian Andersen’s The
Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904)
was celebrated internationally during his lifetime for his chamber,
choral, and symphonic music, while his nine operas found little
renown beyond his native Bohemia. He was especially popular in
London and in New York, where he served for a while as director of
the short-lived National Conservatory of Music. Jaroslav Kvapil
(1868–1950) was a Czech author and poet who had written the libretto
for Rusalka before Dvořák became interested in it.
