Rusalka: Finnish National Opera
Rusalka, © Finnish National Opera



Rusalka is Dvorak's most popular opera thanks to its magical atmosphere and the silvery song of the water sprite. Enjoy this production at the Finnish National Opera.

Director Richard Jones' reading of Dvořak's best-known opera is rugged and human: the water-nymph Rusalka who aspires to become human learns about the dark side of humanity too. Rusalka eventually gains human form, but happiness only lasts for a moment.

Luca B., Finland, April 25 2012   The pronunciation was not particularly good but some of the interpreters could definitively emphatically transmit the power of the Opera to the public. The scenography was impressive but some choreographic elements were kind of senseless.
