Shoreline Library — Opera Preview: Katya Kabanova

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

 

Chunky brown graphic of an arm in a shackleKatya, a soprano role, is a young wife in an unhappy marriage. Her weak husband is an alcoholic, and both the young husband and wife are dominated by his mother, the Kabanicha. Not surprisingly, Kayta is lured into an illicit love affair with a handsome young man from the city. Such improper behavior cannot be tolerated for long, and once the Kabanicha finds out Katya is doomed. Czech composer Janacek’s amazing music in this opera makes Katya’s final scene one of the most gripping in all opera.

This free lecture, provided to increase enjoyment and appreciation of Seattle Opera productions, will feature speaker Norm Hollingshead with recorded musical excerpts.
