LADY MACBETH OF THE MTSENSK DISTRICT

Dmitrij Dmitrijevič Šostakovič

Premiere Mar 8, 2018, 6.30 PM - Antonín Dvořák Theatre

An opera in four acts and nine scenes from 1932

logoInformace

Dmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (1906 – 1975), the libretto is written by Dmitri Dmitriyevich Schostakovich and Alexander Preys (1905-1942), based on the novel of the same name by Nikolai Leskov (1831-1895) from 1865
 
This seminal twentieth-century operatic masterpiece is a “tragedy-satire” of a wicked society desiring sexual dissipation. It is embodied by Katerina, a frustrated and oppressed housewife who resolves to kill people who might create difficulties for her. Shostakovich composed this progressive and dissonant work of brutal emotionality for instrumental solos, choirs and intermezzos. At first the opera was hugely successful, with 180 repeat performances; however, in the period of the Great Terror the composer was condemned in the anonymous article Muddle Instead of Music (1936) and the opera was not performed again until the 1960s.
 
 
 
Performed in Russian with Czech and English subtitles.
