Leaving your world for love can come at a terrible price. See this mythological tale at the London Coliseum.
Dvořák’s best-loved opera, Rusalka is inspired by Slavic myths and folk-tales about a water-nymph that chooses to become human to win her Prince, mirroring Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid.
The opera displays Dvořák’s exceptional gift for melody and orchestration and features the beautiful aria ‘Song to the Moon’.
Our new production is directed by Tatjana Gürbaca (Opernwelt Director of the Year 2013) and conducted by Antony Hermus. Both are making their ENO debuts.
Leading the cast is Corinne Winters in the title role. She returns to ENO after her UK debut as Violetta in La traviata in 2013.
