Rusalka, a water nymph, has fallen in love with a human and desires to pursue mortality at the cost of everything she knows. Rusalka seeks Witch Ježibaba for help; the price of becoming human is her speech, immortality and the requirement of reciprocated love. The ending is unconventionally unhappy, and the famous “Song to the Moon” sung by Rusalka leaves a haunting note.
