Rusalka by Antonin Dvorak at Glyndebourne Festival
Partly inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's poignant fable, 'The Little Mermaid', Dvorák's operatic masterpiece 'Rusalka' tells of a water nymph who longs to become human in order to win the love of a handsome prince, only to find herself betrayed by him and condemned to an eternal existence as a will-o'-the-wisp, luring more men to a watery grave.
Czech maestro Jiří Bělohlávek conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a new production by British director Melly Still, (who recently staged the acclaimed production of Coram Boy at the National Theatre). The production will be sung in Czech with English supertitles.
The world-famous Glyndebourne Opera House is situated near Lewes, East Sussex, just over one hour by train from London Victoria.
