It has more than shock value. Musically, this production is up to snuff, although the Decca recording is more incisively conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras, and it has a superior Prince in Ben Heppner. This is a heldentenorish part, and not a very grateful one, and Sergei Larin sounds as if he is straining much of the time.

Fleming is a vibrant Rusalka. Other singers have brought a clearer, more girlish tone to her music, particularly to the famous Act One "Song to A. Dvořák* Moon," but Fleming's singing J. Kvapil* - Rusalka colored with passion, thereby matching Carsen's concept. Among the principals, she is the only one not to have grown up speaking Czech or Russian, so what she does here is quite an achievement.

With cordial greetings, your sincere friend and admirer, Antonin Dvorak. My idea is that, at this point, both would be A. Dvořák* together.

I am in principle quite against the two singing together, but I think that here it would be effective. The fairy tales of Erben and Bozena Nemcova, which I was studying at the time, accompanied me to the sea.

I used to love spending time in that glade and by the water when I was a student, and some of my early poems came out of that environment. Sometimes he came burdened with worries and occasionally I was flummoxed by his questions. He accepted this, went away and composed music to the words that I had written.

He sat at a table to write it and only occasionally in the evening would he play through something he had written during the day. When the work was finished he played the last part one evening to Suk and his wife. Imagine how I was feeling when I wrote it! In terms of the music itself, this work is utterly faultless. It is the product of profound emotion and its impact lies in the power of its truth.

It touches all aspects Op. 114 (Vinyl) natural human behaviour — love, desire, passion, betrayal, revenge, death, forgiveness and sacrifice — in such a ravishing and spontaneous arc, that it takes your J. Kvapil* - Rusalka away The only one not to join in the fun is Rusalka. She longs to become human and have a human soul so that she can awaken feelings of love in an unknown man who comes to swim in the lake while out hunting. The latter casts a spell to give Rusalka a human soul and a human form, but at great cost: Rusalka has to sacrifice her translucent watery robes and her voice.

And there is another condition: if mute Rusalka cannot keep the love of a human, she will be damned and will have to return to the depths of the lake, and her beloved will become a victim of her curse.

Rusalka is not discouraged and, when she meets the Prince, he is enchanted by her beauty and falls in love with her. The Prince takes her to his castle.
