"In Dvorák's three-act opera, which she has consistently shortened, the young director succeeds in leading the soloists to very impressive performances in the midst of the densely packed audience. A production that definitely has the potential for a revival in the new season." (Fränkischer Tag, Jochen Berger)


We are located underground in a fishery - a converted former butcher's shop in downtown Coburg. Rusalka lives there, together with Vodnik, the waterman. As her father and closest confidant, he is extremely reluctant to let her out of his wing. Rusalka longs for love, longs for 'human'. The witch Ježibaba offers her help. But everything has its price...
