Renowned Czech fairytale debuts in China
“Rusalka”, now staged at the National Center for the Performing Arts, was Dvorak’s ninth opera. And it’s striking a chord with audience members …
Soprano Dinara Alieva charts her journey in the title role.
“This is a fantastic role, beautiful music, and a great production. I’m very happy. Before I’ve played many many roles, but this role is different because she’s fairy tale, mysterious, and fantastic. And she transforms into three characters. Very difficult,” Alieva said.
“Ms. Alieva is a very good colleague, she has a beautiful voice. I’m sure the audience will like the show,” said Peter Berger, actor for prince.
The 2000-seat opera house was packed out every day during the week-long run of Rusalka.
