Chorus and Orchestra of Janacek's opera NDB

Premiere February 24, 2012 at the Janáček Theatre

The most successful opera greats of Czech music. Beautiful fairy tale, which stems from wistful fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, tells the story of a great love, happiness and a bolus, disappointment and despair that Dvořák's music draws in tklivých melodies. Only a few people this touching tale of the water nymph in love with an earthly prince knows: the scenes of the opera theaters in the world, opera found its permanent place. Not only for its time class libretto comes from the pen of Jaroslav Kvapil. Dvorak Rusalka finally confirmed its position as the world's leading composers. The score abounds with fervent melody, tender and dramatically tense. A fairytale atmosphere is full of melodic imagination and masterful instrumentation. This new production is the work of an outstanding theater and film director Vladimir Moravek, who brought to the fabulous world of distinctive poetry evoking the ancient Norse and Celtic myths. Reviews praised the "very strong musically impressive" design, described as "one of the most promising figures in Janacek's opera repertoire for the last time" (M. Zapletal, Brno diary).
