Live via satellite in high definition from NYC's Metropolitan Opera! The title character of Rusalka is a water nymph. She's immortal; and she falls in love with a mortal man -- a prince who finds himself repeatedly drawn to the quiet lake where Rusalka lives. Rusalka decides to give up her immortality to pursue true love. But, her prince no hero. He abandons Rusalka, leaving her to a hellish life of eternal solitude. Of course, there's much more to the story -- the truly romantic part. The prince realizes his mistake, seeks Rusalka out, and willingly makes his own, ultimate sacrifice, to restore her immortality.
