Antonin Dvorak: Rusalka (Blu-Ray)
DUX presents a stunning production of Dvorak's Rusalka on blu-ray. Conductor Maciej Figas leads the Orchestra, Choir and Ballet of the Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz together with a wonderful cast of soloists in this dramatic and passionate rendition.
Rusalka is the most beautiful Czech operatic work; extremely atmospheric, with an original fairy-tale libretto. It is characterised by the subtlety of the means of musical expression (especially the masterful instrumentation), perfection of the formal structure, as well as the nobility and originality of the melodic invention. Fascinated by the beauty of Antonín Dvorák's work, the Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz succeeded with a serious challenge - they conventionally integrated an entirely classical opera performance in a revitalised space of a modern city centre, with its difficult history, stretched out - what the replica of the Old Town Theatre Bridge suggests - between the two reluctant worlds, like the fairy-tale love of the title nymph and prince.
