Song, dance, drama, text, visual arts, it’s all there waiting to surprise you and help you express yourself: voice, stage, theatre and image professionals will guide you through the many aspects of opera, the art that has everything!


Workshop #1

The Storm: about Kát’a Kabanová by Janaček / Theater and music workshop
By Tamara Fischer and Mariama Sylla

Kát’a Kabanová is suffocating in the closed environment of her small provincial town in Russia, squeezed between her falot husband, Tichon, and her authoritarian and contemptuous mother-in-law, Kabanicha. How can she resist the attention of the young Boris during her husband’s absence? Can Kát’a find happiness or will frustration and despair lead her to tragedy?

Composer Leoš Janaček was a great lover of literature and theater. The libretto of his opera Kát’a Kabanová was taken from the play The Storm by Alexander Ostrovsky. In an acting workshop that will also feature Janaček’s musical score, join us in discovering the characters and the fable of Kát’a Kabanová.
