Salle Wilfrid Pelletier
|An Otherworldly Rusalka with L'Opera de Montréal|
|Rusalka is a strange love story—one that ends with a man dying in the embrace of a woman (as opposed to the classic opposite). The story’s end finds no closure, but instead acts as the birth of a fearsome Czech folktale about a water nymph who is doomed to ensnare young men. And finally, the opera contains but one ‘love aria’ which appears in the final scene, and ends in tragic death.|
