Ópera de Tenerife proposes for March the opera of its own production Rusalka, by Antonín Dvořák.
Rusalka, first performed in 1901, was composed by Antonín Dvořák. It involves a libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil, loosely based on the fairy tale Undine (1811) by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué and inspired by The Little Mermaid (1837) by Hans Christian Andersen and other European tales. The soprano Ángeles Blancas will play Rusalka, a water nymph who asks a witch to be turned into a human in order to be with the prince who she has fallen in love with, despite the fact that this means losing her voice. The tragic ending to the opera differs from other versions of the same story which have been sugar-coated for children.
