The premiere of a new production of Janáček's opera Katya Kabanova took place on January 16 at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden. The stage director was Matthew Wild, a South African opera director, who is currently working as Artistic Director of Cape Town Opera, and who set the story into a gloomy post-Soviet periphery. Zsolt Hamar, General Music Director of the Wiesbaden State Theatre, is the conductor. The title role of Katya is sung by the Slovenian soprano Sabina Cvilak.
