Antonín Dvořák Rusalka

With Antonín Dvořák’s most famous opera, Rusalka, the Concertgebouworkest and the Dutch National Opera are pursuing their successful collaboration with Dvořák’s compatriot Jakub Hrůša at the helm.

Rusalka

The concert season would not be complete without an opera production. This year, the Concertgebouworkest and the Dutch National Opera present Dvořák’s Rusalka, a tragic fairy tale about a water nymph who yearns to be human.

Like all fairy tales, it is full of timeless narrative elements: the discovery of love, rejection, regret and deep disappointment – sad yet beautiful material for a Romantic composer like Dvořák. He stood out not only for his folk-like spontaneity, but also for his talent for writing catchy melodies and the deep melancholy that lies beneath his seemingly cheerful notes. In Rusalka, he goes from strength to strength.

The performance has one intermission.
