The performance, Czech composer Antonin Dvorak’s Rusalka, consisted of opera with classical and slavic folk components, and included modern dance and ballet. It is rarely performed in the west. It was a tour de force and held its own with the magnificence of the theatre. It contains the famous “Song to the Moon,” featured in the movie Schindler’s list.
