Product Description:

The Royal Concertbegow's 2006 production of Shostakovich's powerful and brutal tragic opera, starring Eva-Maria Westbroek as Katerina, captures the work's awful realism with stunning force. Bonus material includes interviews with the directors and cast members.

Product Description:

Shostakovich's musically brilliant and ingeniously panoramic opera about love, lust, power and oppression is fabulously performed by the Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons in this authoritative production. Stage director Martin KuĊĦej builds on formidable musical strengths to forge a relentless drama that explores with emotional conviction the shadowy, layered boundaries between victims and perpetrators. First-rate protagonist Eva-Maria Westbroek is phenomenal in her gripping interpretation of Katarina, compelling the entire cast, including the choir, to almost unbearable realism in their portrayal of timeless human weaknesses.
