Katya's inner conflicts drives her to despair in this fierce opera by Leoš Janáček.

The young woman Katya lives under a strict and oppressive regime ruled by her mother-in-law. She feels trapped in an unhappy marriage and dreams of freedom and passionate love.

The opera's three main roles are interpreted by the exquisite soloists Ausrine Stundyte, Susan Bullock and Ladislav Elgr.

Janáček's music has greatly influenced many later composers, and his expressive style and innovative techniques have made him one of the most significant composers of the 20th century.
