Why See Canadian Opera Company - Rusalka?
Be careful what you wish for
Delve beneath the waves with the Canadian Opera Company as they bring this new staging of Dvorak's ethereal masterpiece to you this season. An intoxicating take on the age-old tale of a mermaid drawn to a land-dwelling Prince, Sondra Radvonovksy brings her inimitable talents to the role, one which includes the exquisite 'Song of the Moon' aria.
What is the story?
A tale as old as time, each culture has its own version of the mermaid story, with a Rusalka being the name of a water sprite in Slavic mythology. Don't expect any Disney like happy endings here, as Dvorak leads us down a darker path as Rusalka finds her love rejected after sacrificing her voice. Distraught and sentenced to live as a demon of the deep, even revenge cannot fix the pain of a broken heart. Don't miss your chance to discover this supernatural world beneath the depths where mermaids, immortals and nefarious Sea-Witches dwell.

From the beginning of the pounding percussion line, the energy in the theatre was palpable. I've never felt anything like it!
