Rusalka • Mon 19 June 2023 • Teatro alla Scala
Rusalka • Antonín Dvořák • from 6 to 22 June 2023
The opera RUSALKA was written by the Czech composer Antonin Dvořák. It is the first performance at Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
Dvořák wrote the opera as a lyrical fairy tale in 1900, with the libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil.
In the lyrical fairy tale, the nymph Rusalka is the main character. She longs for love and allows herself to be transformed from a witch into a human. Rusalka loses his voice and remains silent. The prince meets Rusalka on his hunt and the two fall in love, but the nymph is not made for human love and the prince has other amusements.
The fairy tale ends tragically as Rusalka cannot transform back into a mermaid and the prince dies from her kiss.
Rusalka will be interpreted by the Ukrainian soprano Olga Bezsmertna.
Directed by the successful Italian theater director Emma Dante.
