"Oh sweet silver moon, where is my love waiting?"

About the show

In this enchanting opera, Rusalka shimmers with magic and transformation before the final echoes of tragedy.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale, The Little Mermaid, the water nymph Rusalka longs for the love of a Prince. First, she must sacrifice her voice to become human. This turns into a curse when she discovers the true cost of being part of a world she neither knows nor understands.

Blending soaring romantic melody and charming Czech folk music, Rusalka is the most intoxicating fairytale opera, best loved for the dreamlike beauty of the exquisite aria ‘Song to the Moon’.

An award-winning creative team brings this new grand-scale production to the stage.
