Star soprano Sonya Yoncheva adds a new role to her repertoire: the water sprite Rusalka, who yearns to become human in order to find love—singing the sublime Song to the Moon in the process. In Mary Zimmerman’s evocative staging of Dvořák’s tragic take on the Little Mermaid fable, the soprano shares the stage with tenor Piotr Beczała as her smitten prince and bass-baritone Eric Owens, fresh off last season’s historic run as Porgy in Porgy and Bess, as her father, Vodník. Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša makes his Met debut.
