Notes and Editorial Reviews
Leos Janácek's opera Katia Kabanova follows the life of a middle-class family in the 1850s and is set on the banks of the Volga in a small town, Kalinove in Russia. Christopher Marthaler’s modern production takes place in the 1990s and sheds a new light on this intense drama.

Recorded at the Kleines Festspielhaus during the 1998 Salzburg Festival.
