Rusalka

More Info:

Praised by critics as "magnificent", "breathtakingly theatrical" and full of "zestful imagination", Melly Still's "spine-tingling" Rusalka is a Glyndebourne classic - a magical contemporary reimagining of a much-loved fairy tale. Light and darkness, beauty and danger come together in this passionate tale of love against the odds. At once evocative and unsettling, this production collides two contrasting worlds in Rae Smith's elegant designs made of "brilliant stage-pictures". Rusalka's forest home is a dappled space of sunshine and shadows, full of strange woodland creatures, while the Prince's court is a world of sleek modernity and sophistication - a world of man.
