About

Rusalka, a water spirit, lives with her family in the pure waters of the forest lake. When she falls in love with a Prince, she sacrifices her voice and leaves her home in the hope of finding true love in a new world – a world that does not love her back.

Natalie Abrahami and Ann Yee create a poetic, contemporary new staging of Dvořák’s lyric fairy tale, revealing our uneasy relationship with the natural world and humanity’s attempts to own and tame it. Semyon Bychkov conducts an all-star cast featuring Asmik Grigorian (Rusalka) in the title role.

“Ann Yee and Natalie Abrahami’s thoughtful and effective new production shapes Dvořák’s opera into a tale of mankind versus nature. A first-rate cast is matched by Semyon Bychkov in the pit. Asmik Grigorian’s first Rusalka in the UK doesn’t disappoint.” – The Guardian ★★★★

“... a superb cast with no weak links … [a] remarkable feminist-orientated and incidentally ecologically sustainable production." – The Evening Standard ★★★★
