Antonín Dvorák: Rusalka / Eilene Hannan, John Treleaven, Phyllis Cannan, Rodney Macann, Ann Howard, Edward Byles. English Nat'l Opera, Elder (live 1986, sung in English) [Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

David Pountney's landmark English National Opera, 1986 staging of Antonín Dvorák's haunting fairy tale opera left critics and audiences spellbound. ¬ The production is set in a Victorian nursery where an adolescent girl, on the brink of sensual awakening, dreams of first love. Her story is that of Rusalka the wood nymph who sacrifices all for a love that is destined for betrayal. Mr. Pountney conjures up an enchanted world of repression and surreal fantasy teetering on the edge of a nightmare. Mark Elder leads the ENO Orchestra and Chorus, with Eilene Hannan singing the title role.
