A Seattle Opera Premiere!
 
CAPTIVATING DRAMA. In this romantic tragedy overflowing 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? Acclaimed Australian director Patrick Nolan’s all-new production dives deep into the emotional turbulence lurking beneath the surface of small town respectability.
 
In Czech with English subtitles
 
Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, with 1 intermission
