Presented by Cincinnati Opera at Music Hall, Cincinnati OH

Jul 09 - 11 2020

For the first time in Cincinnati Opera’s 100-year history, we present Dvořák’s beautiful and tragic tale of a love-struck mermaid who pins her heart and her future on a mortal prince.

She came from the water, a creature as beautiful and mysterious as the lake she called home. Desperately in love with a mortal prince, Rusalka wanted nothing more than to become human and live her happily-ever-after… but at what cost?
For the first time in Cincinnati Opera history, we present Dvořák’s beautiful and tragic fairy tale based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. Our “otherworldly” production (Bachtrack) and the world-renowned Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
