Rusalka: Glyndebourne Touring Opera
Entwining elements of a number of familiar fairy stories from Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid and Slavic myths of lake and forest spirits, to the French tale of Undine, this opera is both fantastical and painfully human.
Dvo?ák's richly expressive music conjures up a world of dark forests and deep lakes. The water spirit Rusalka falls hopelessly in love with the Prince who comes daily to swim in the lake where she lives. He cannot see her and her only chance of becoming visible to him and of entering the human world is to make a terrible pact with Ježibaba the witch. She gives up her own world and loses the power of speech in exchange for the chance to experience the pain and joy of human love.
Profoundly alien both to the rough, uncomprehending servants at the Prince's court, and to the socially superior courtiers who surround him, Rusalka cannot thrive. Ignored by the Prince, who betrays her for the Foreign Princess, she is forced back to the lake but can no longer find refuge there either. She forgives the Prince with a final passionate kiss, but Rusalka has loved and lost – for her there can be no redemption.
