Kát’a Kabanová

We went to the new production of Kát’a Kabanová last night at Covent Garden, directed by Richard Jones and designed by Antony McDonald: a wonderfully intense, pure two and a quarter hours of Moravian emotion, beautifully sung and performed by Amanda Majeski as Katĕrina on a beautifully minimal set, consisting mainly of a gyrating modernist bus shelter. I’m relieved to find that Rupert Christiansen agrees.
