Rusalka Synopsis

By May 13, 2012

Follow me on:

Antonin DvorakHaving posted the lyrics to Dvorak's "Song to the Moon" just last week, I thought I'd share the synopsis to its operatic home, Rusalka. The opera's libretto was based on the fairy tales of fairy tales of Karel Jaromír Erben and Božena Němcová.  However, most of you may be familiar with the story if you've seen Disney's The Little Mermaid. However, Dvorak's Rusalka, is a much sadder tale - not everyone lives happily ever after.  Learn the story of Rusalka in this opera synopsis.
