Described by many as the most famous and loved of the Czech operas, Antonin Dvorák’s Rusalka returns to the Gran Teatre del Liceu for a handful of performances.
Rusalka is the symbolic tale of a water nymph who chooses to become human and sacrifice her life for love, which leads to terrible consequences. A tragic love story with an exquisite musical score, featuring ballads alongside traditional Czech melodies, the opera is divided into three acts and lasts approximately 3 hours and 25 minutes.
The opera was first performed at the National Theatre in Prague in 1901, and has a long-held connection with the Liceu, which first showcased the opera in 1924. The return of the Rusalka promises to recreate the original and enchanting magic of decades ago.
