Des Moines Metro Opera Presents: Rusalka

  • Blank Performing Arts Center 516 North D Street Indianola, IA, 50125 United States (map)

Based on a familiar fairy tale, Rusalka features a beautiful water nymph who falls in love with a human prince and will do anything to escape her enchanted moonlit world to become human. She sacrifices everything to be a part of his life, but her wish comes at a very high price.

Dvořák juxtaposes the mortal and the mythical with beautiful folk melodies and luminous arias, including Rusalka’s familiar and radiant “Song to the Moon.” Sara Gartland, who was last seen at DMMO as Jenůfa, returns to sing the title role.
