SummarySeattle Opera Preview Concert of Janáček’s “Katya Kabanova.”
DescriptionFeaturing professional singers and accompanist, Seattle Opera offers this hour-long presentation of Janáček’s romantic tragedy that overflows with immediately accessible, powerfully original music inspired by Slavic folk songs. The celebrated Czech composer weaves a dreamlike, visceral story of isolation and provincial oppression. Sheltered Katya longs to be free of her dull arranged marriage and dreary home life. Recently awakened to true love, she remains dominated by a monstrous mother-in-law. Can Katya’s fragile world survive when her pent-up passions finally burst forth? Come join us for a thoroughly entertaining preview concert of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production.
