Danceworks Performance MKE and Milwaukee Opera Theater take the stage for their 7th collaboration and telling of the tale of Rusalka, a story of a water nymph searching for humanity through love by way of magic. This musical fairy tale, resembling the classic The Little Mermaid, is rooted in Czech folklore, with compositions by folk music inspired Antonín Dvořák, libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil. Alongside this tale's classic arias will be a modern day restructuring of the story by writer, Jason Powell, who is no stranger to sharing the stage with Danceworks and MOT. His writing reimagines this story through a modern day lens by crafting playful commentary on the current state of our water climate while comparing our blind fantasies of indulgent living to Rusalka's fantasies with love.
