A new co-production with Theater Magdeburg.

Renowned British director Stephen Lawless brings his trademark theatricality to Janáček’s intense drama.

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. This insightful new production brings the shattering effects of oppression and isolation to the fore as Kátya is inexorably drawn towards the ever-present Volga river, and the escape it alone can offer…

‘For me, Janacek is the pre-eminent operatic composer of the 20th Century and Katya Kabová his greatest work. Short, compact, fast moving and not without humour - it is for me the template for what opera should be.’Stephen Lawless

Following the huge success of recent Czech opera productions – Janáček’s Jenůfa (2015) and Dvořák’s Rusalka (2016) – Kátya makes a long overdue return to Scottish Opera’s main Season programme. 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. Laura Wilde, much-lauded for her Jenůfa at English National Opera in 2016, sings Kátya, alongside a cast including American tenor Ric Furman and Hanna Hipp (The Marriage of Figaro 2016). Distinguished mezzo Patricia Bardon is meddling mother-in-law Kabanicha. Stuart Stratfordconducts.
