Magic opera Rusalka is one of the finest works of Antonin Dvorak.

Czech original version with English surtitles 
The moving story of water nymph Rusalka is based on the fairy tale The Little Mermaid by H. Ch. Andersen. The fruit of the co-operation between A. Dvorak and the poet J. Kvapil, who were close both as artists and friends, is a magical, dreamy story of great, unfulfilled desire of the water nymph Rusalka.
In the opera Rusalka Dvorak’s musical genius reached its apex. The fairy-tale atmosphere inspired the composer to create impressionistic music replete with melodic imagination and masterful instrumentation, a suggestive expression of the play of waves and the reflection of moonlight on the surface of a lake, as well as the magic of a fairy-tale dream.
