Tragedy of Forbidden Love

The English National Opera from London is teaming up with Polish performers in April to stage the first production of Czech composer Leos Janacek's opera Katia Kabanova in Warsaw.
The opera tells the story of a woman undertaking an unequal battle for freedom. The forbidden love in which Katia seeks salvation ultimately leads to her death.
The expressive music of Janacek, endowed with the extraordinary power of pure emotion, turns a drama into a tragedy. The opera director is David Alden, an American famous both in the United States and in Europe. His productions at the English National Opera include Verdi's Simon Boccanegra and Un ballo in maschera, Berlioz's La damnation de Faust, and Wagner's Tristan und Isolde.
His latest premiere in London, Janacek's Jenufa from 2006, was named Best New Opera Production and won the Olivier Award.
In Warsaw, the orchestra will be conducted by Tomas Hanus. Charles Edwards is the stage designer, Jon Morrell designed the costumes and Adam Silverman is the lighting designer.
