Lyric Opera of Chicago on WRTI: Dvorak's RUSALKA, June 28, 1 PM

Rusalka500px.jpg
Soprano Ana Maria Martinez sings the title role in Dvorak's RUSALKA.

You may know Antonin Dvo?ák's rousing New World Symphony - but here he's at his romantic best as dark swirling undercurrents blend seamlessly with entrancing folk melodies. A witch grants a water nymph mortality so she can marry the prince she adores. But if he's unfaithful, their souls are damned for eternity. And damned they are in the darkly sensual fairytale. Saturday, June 28, 1 to 4:30 pm.
