This is a very welcome reissue by Brilliant Classics. I have written a review of a previous release of this recording from the 1980s, the bulk of which I have reprinted below. Sadly, Brilliant haven't (I understand) provided much in the way of information about this important work nor do they provide a libretto in either Russian or English but the earlier release by the label Relief* only provided a libretto in Russian and a rather poor booklet essay too so unless you understand Russian you will lose little or nothing by purchasing this bargain-priced release instead of the more expensive alternative issue. If you are interested in Russian opera, I can fully recommend getting to know this fascinating work.

Dargomyzhsky's `Rusalka' has a significant place in the development of Russian opera and is probably the most important stage work between Glinka's two seminal masterpieces and the operas of the Mighty Handful and Tchaikovsky. It is good, therefore, to have this Soviet recording of the work available on compact disc. Towards the end of the nineteenth century it became something of a repertory staple in Russia and Chaliapin brought it to the West following the First World War, the role of the avaricious miller being ideally suited to his acting talents; without Chaliapin to endorse the work it failed to make any further headway in the West, although it continued to be performed in the USSR.

this is very different than the Dvorak Rusalka we are all accustomed to, even so, it has its wonderful after belcanto period music, beginning to listen to Russian opera & being this avaliable I couldn't pass it by its a pleasure to listen to, for details about the recording, this was released before on a Russian label not melody, recorded in 1983 & directed by Fedoseyev, look for it on the internet
