The title character’s well-known “Song to the Moon” provides a mere taste of Rusalka’s vast musical riches. Listen for its equal
​ ​treatment of orchestra and voices and for its subtle use of leitmotifs, but also for its shimmering, nearly
​ ​impressionistic instrumentation, evoking the lapping of waves on water, nocturnal forest sounds and even the reflection of moonlight on the lake.
