The Royal Opera House: Rusalka


The Royal Opera House: Rusalka

Wednesday 24 January 2024


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 (Jenůfa) in the title role.
