Rusalka, a water spirit, lives with her family in the pure waters of the forest lake. When she falls in love with a prince, she sacrifices her voice and leaves her home in the hope of finding true love in a new world - a world that does not love her back.

Natalie Abrahami and Ann Yee create a poetic, contemporary new staging of Dvořák’s lyric fairy tale, revealing our uneasy relationship with the natural world and humanity’s attempts to own and tame it. Semyon Bychkov conducts an all-star cast featuring Asmik Grigorian (Jenůfa) in the title role.

Conductor: Semyon Bychkov.

Recorded at the Royal Opera House, London in 2022.

Sung in Czech with English subtitles
