Rusalka tells of the story of The Little Mermaid who gives her voice to a wicked witch for a chance at human love with a mortal Prince. Her desperate longing to experience true love plunges her into an emotional storm. She must choose to make the ultimate sacrifice for love. Romantic, ethereal, and hauntingly sad, Dvořák’s dramatic music soars with melody, romance, and longing. Rusalka is not only Dvořák’s finest and most enduringly popular opera but also one of the most deeply moving operas of all.

These opera performances are made possible through the generous assistance of the Chan Endowment Fund of the University of British Columbia and the UBC David Spencer Endowment Encouragement Fund.
