WHAT WOULD YOU SACRIFICE FOR HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER? A water nymph falls in love with a human prince. A witch agrees to make her human – but the spell will break if she ever speaks. Based on the classic fairy tale The Little Mermaid, Dvořák’s luxurious 1901 masterpiece travels from a mythical forest to a palace and back again. With a world populated by water sprites and royalty, its glorious score includes the famous “Song to the Moon.” Don’t miss the Madison Opera premiere of our first opera in Czech.
