Dvořak's Rusalka
Presented by Louise Fryer

Tonight's Opera on 3 is a recording of the Royal Opera's first fully staged production of Dvořak's Rusalka. In a radical interpretation by Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito, Dvořak's "lyric fairytale" stars Finnish soprano Camilla Nylund in the title role and Yannick Nezet-Seguin makes his Royal Opera debut conducting the late Romantic score, which features the celebrated aria "Song to the Moon".
