"The production’s “poor, pale Rusalka” was soprano Emily Birsan in a captivating role debut. The famous “Song to the Moon” revealed the soprano’s lovely lyric instrument and aptitude for intelligent phrasing straightaway; but it was in her anguished narrative “Ó marno,...


"But the stage belonged to the women. Emily Birsan. . . as Rusalka was a study in subtle shadings of her expressive soprano voice . . . She is a powerful singer and convincing actress who was engaging to watch and to hear. . . The villainous Foreign Princess portrayed...
