Otto Schenk's storybook production perfectly captures the fairy-tale world of Dvorak's supremely romantic opera. Soprano Renee Fleming, in one of her most acclaimed portrayals, takes on the title role of the water nymph who longs to be human, opposite Piotr Beczala as the Prince, the object of her affection. The expressive and inspired atristry of the Met Opera brilliantly led by Nezet-Seguin closely follows the heartbreaking story in this magical opera.
