    Dvořák’s bewitching opera is a retelling of the timeless mermaid myth. Rusalka, the water sprite, is hopelessly smitten by an earth-bound prince. But, to be by his side, she has to risk it all and leave behind her mystical home of rivers and lakes to enter the dangerous world of humans on land. Getting her wish granted, however, turns out to be as much a curse as it is a blessing.

    Dreamlike melodies and ethereal poetry cast a powerful spell in this sensuous opera, which includes the “Song to the Moon” aria, performed by superstar soprano Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role.
