Learn more about Scottish Opera's Kátya Kabanová.
Renowned British director Stephen Lawless brings his trademark theatricality to Janáček’s intense drama, illuminating the shattering effects of oppression and isolation. In a small industrial community, lost in the vast landscape of Russia, Kátya is torn between her love of a younger man and her duty as a wife. With romance, drama and an orchestral scoring that encompasses an extraordinary range of colours and textures, Janáček’s music is both heartrending and hugely uplifting.
A new co-production with Theater Magdeburg. Sung in Czech with English supertitles. Supported by The Alexander Gibson Circle.
