Watch the London Symphony Orchestra’s critically acclaimed performance of Janácek’s opera Katya Kabanova, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.

Janácek’s tale of love and loneliness centers around the young Katya. Living in a remote country village with her boring husband and his snobbish family, she is desperate for love and an escape. Everything changes one stormy evening when a secret love enters her life, changing it forever.

Sir Simon Rattle hand-picked a star-studded cast of singers including tenor Simon O’Neill and, appearing in one of her signature roles as seen at the Royal Opera House, Amanda Majeski as Katya. This concert is bursting with energy, emotion, and a brilliant performance from the entire cast. It’s no wonder critics gave this performance countless five-star reviews.
