This highly acclaimed production from the Bayerische Staatsoper was a veritable sensation and a double revelation. That of the powerful and fascinating re-interpretation of Antonín Dvorák's fairy-tale opera "Rusalka" and that of the young, up-and-coming Latvian soprano, Kristine Opolais, whose performance was hailed by the press as "one of the most vivid and striking accomplishments seen on an opera stage in a long time" (Vienna's daily "Der Standard"). With her velvety soprano, her captivating beauty and her tremendous stage presence, Opolais perfectly embodies the role of the water nymph who becomes a human in order to find love, but loses all hope when her prince is seduced by a sensual princess. Renowned director Martin Kusej compellingly accentuates the psychological misery of the spurned nymph. Tomas Hanus conducts the music of of his compatriot Dvorák.
