Summary A highly-acclaimed production from the Bayerische Staatsoper, a powerful and fascinating reinterpretation of Dvorak's fairy-tale opera Rusalka. The young, up-and-coming Latvian soprano, Kristine Opolais's performance was rightly praised by the press. With her supple and velvety soprano voice, captivating physical beauty, and hauntingly moving stage presence, Opolais perfectly embodies the role of the water nymph who becomes a human being in order to find love.
