before transferring to Festival

Theatre Edinburgh.

Living in a small, industrial

community in Russia, Kátya

Kabanová is torn between her

duties as a wife, and her dreams

of a man who truly loves her.

Trapped within an oppressive

community, neglected by her

husband and tormented by

her mother-in-law, she is drawn

towards escape, to nature and to

the ever-present Volga river.

Stephen Lawless said:

“Kátya Kabanová is one of the

greatest 20th-century operas.

Janácek writes consummate

In March, Scottish Opera presents

Leos Janácek’s intense drama

Kátya Kabanová

in a new

co-production with Theater

Magdeburg, directed by the

renowned British director Stephen

Lawless and conducted

by Stuart Stratford.

Following the recent success

of Czech operas on the Scottish

Opera stage with Janácek’s

Jenufa

(2015) and Dvorák’s

Rusalka

(2016),

Kátya Kabanová

opens in Glasgow on 12th March

parts for women and the role of

Kátya is arguably his best. Our

compassion for her predicament

draws from music of soaring

intensity and heart-stopping

lyricism. Scottish Opera has

assembled a world-class cast

that will bring all their expertise to

this tale of love, guilt, retribution

and transcendence.”

more about how the production

was created can attend
