“The Nixie” is a dark folk tale, based on an old Polish legend, immortalized by Adam Mickiewicz in a ballad of the same name. It tells the story of a water nymph who takes on a human form to seduce a young man she encounters in the forest. Mesmerized, he makes a vow of love towards her, and the woman transforms back into the nymph to test his love. Will he manage to stay faithful?
