All these water nymphs are quietly languishing in their ponds overgrown with duckweed. The only exception is a raving rusalka Mafalda Salvatini. But it's not what is expected from her melancholic and self-destructive character, it's rather appropriate in the beginning of the opera, nymphs' trio. So the circle becomes smaller. Emmy Destinn sings as if she remembers about her dream after a half century since she has denied Jezibaba's offers. Among others I chose according to a beauty of timbre. Today it's Inge Borkh. I also had in mind that it was a voice of Elektra.
