Cervinka after Ostrovsky

New Production

David Alden follows his double Olivier Award-winning production of Jancek's Jenufa with a new staging of the Czech composer's later lyrical masterpiece, Katya Kabanova.

A claustrophobically intense yet heart-rending study of sexual morality within a close-knit community, it was inspired by Jancek's erotic obsession with a younger married woman.

Stunning singing actress Patricia Racette makes her ENO debut as the passionate soul trapped in a loveless marriage, with Stuart Skelton (a sensational Peter Grimes in another Alden staging in 2009) as the stranger who offers her a brief hope of happiness.

Jancek's most lyrically emotional score is conducted by Mark Wigglesworth with an outstanding cast also featuring Susan Bickley, Clive Bayley, John Graham-Hall, Anna Grevelius and Alfie Boe.

Costumes were built by The Dallas Opera Costume Workshop

A co-production with Teatro Nacional de Sao Carlos, Lisbon and Teatr Wielki-Opera Narodowa, Warsaw

Supported by The Friends of ENO and The English National Opera Trust.
