A mermaid's journey for human love.
The sea-princess Rusalka wants nothing more than to live on land with the Prince. To get her wish, she agrees to a fateful spell by a sea witch. In Dvořák’s hands, the timeless fairy tale of a mermaid, who trades her voice for love, is rendered in a powerful, otherworldly fable—a drama of shadowy depths, fervent love songs and endings that may not be what they seem. Enter an enchanting underwater world full or immortal spirits, dark magic and haunting melodies.
