Why See Rusalka?
A Brand New Rusalka At The ENO
Before the Little Mermaid there was Antonin Dvorak's Rusalka, a Slavic fairy fable about an ethereal water nymph that chooses a life on land to win over her true love, the Prince. Brought to vivid life by Dvorak's exquisite melodies and the evocative language of Czech poet Jaroslav Kvapil, the English National Opera presents a brand new production helmed by German opera director Tatjana Gurbaca and conducted by Dutch maestro Antony Hermus, both making their ENO debut.
After a critically acclaimed turn as Violetta in the ENO's 2013 production of La Traviata, American soprano Corinne Winters returns to the UK in the titular role of the water spirit alongside Olivier nominated British tenor David Butt Phillip as the Prince. When Rusalka falls in love with the very much human prince after spying him hunting around her lake home, she tells her father of her plans to become human to embrace him. He tells her it's not a good idea, but ultimately supports her, sending her to a witch and ultimately her doom...

Fiddler on the Roof
A resonant slice of history...and a warm, absorbing folk tale that strikes unerringly at the heart with the timeless simplicity of its themes: home, family, love.
Come From Away
it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
