On 25th February, Seattle Opera in Washington, USA, premiered a new production of Leoš Janáček's Katya Kabanova. The Australian director Patrick Nolan, debutant at this opera house, did not set the story into the tsarist Russia, but into a small American town in the 50s. The heroine is thus presented as a modern woman rebelling against the patriarchal environment of the time that considered a woman's main task in life to be the care of her husband, children and household.
