The information says:
Join Theodore Deacon for an entertaining preview lecture of "Katya Kabanova." Recently awakened to true love, sheltered Katya longs to be free of her dreary arranged marriage and monstrous mother-in-law. Will her fragile world survive when pent-up passions burst forth?
Overflowing with startlingly original music inspired by Slavic folk songs, Janáček’s romantic tragedy weaves a visceral, dreamlike story of isolation and provincial oppression. Seattle Opera premiere!
