Serie

Poetry and sensuality take pride of place in this production of Rusalka, created for the Paris Opera in 2001. In taking up the well-known subject of the siren, Dvořák wrote a bewitching score that plunges the spectator into a mysterious and disturbing universe, magnificently represented in Robert Carsen’s production. Reality and the supernatural, earth and water, humans and ethereal beings are juxtaposed in this almost sublimely dreamlike opera. However, the meeting between two worlds is never without consequences: if the dreamworld nymph Rusalka sacrifices her voice, the only too human Prince loses his life.
