Leoš Janáček’s opera of loneliness, love, and the price of passion, in a dramatic concert performance from Sir Simon Rattle and a hand-picked cast sung in Czech.
Káťa is young, sensitive and desperate for love. But trapped in a remote country village with a bored husband and his snobbish family, she has no way out, until a summer thunderstorm changes everything. Uncompromisingly honest, and pulsing with intensely human emotion, Káťa Kabanová is opera for grown-ups, written in music that cuts straight to the chase. The LSO’s concert stagings of classic operas always make headlines: this will be one to remember.
Tonight’s cast includes the superb Kiwi tenor Simon O’Neill and living legend Sir John Tomlinson. Káťa is one of Amanda Majewski’s signature roles – she won’t hold back tonight.
‘Majeski gives such heartfelt commitment to the role of Káťa that one worries how she can come back down from the emotional peaks and precipices that she scales.’ – Opera Today
