Notes & Reviews:

It was by chance in 1900 that Dvorak came by the libretto for Rusalka by the poet Jaroslav Kvapil. It had been declined by two of Dvorak's pupils, Nedbal and Suk, as well as J.B. Foerster. Dvorak was delighted with the libretto, and completed the score within a year. Rusalka was premiered in 1901 and has become Dvorak's most popular opera. It was also the first of his operas to break free of the Wagnerian style that had permeated his earlier stage works. Recording made in 1997.
