Shostakovich’s 'Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk'
Saturday, April 18, 2015
Join us Saturday at 1 pm for a rare revival of Shostakovich's searing drama "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk," heard in an archived Met Opera performance from November.
Shostakovich’s towering tragedy of adultery and murder stars the commanding dramatic soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as the heroine who suffers the vagaries of her treachery. Brandon Jovanovich is her co-conspirator and lover, Sergei, and Anatoli Kotscherga is her brutal father-in-law, Boris. James Conlon conducts.
Eva-Maria Westbroek: Katerina Ismailova
