Program Notes

Song to the Moon is perhaps one of the most beautiful arias ever written for soprano voice. The aria takes place early in the first act of the opera Rusalka by Antonin Dvořák. The protagonist, Rusalka, is a water nymph who falls in love with a human prince she views swimming in her lake. As a water nymph, she is invisible to humans, so she prays to the rising moon in a heart-wrenching aria to reveal her love to the human.
