Olivia Fuch’s 2009 production of Janáček’s Kat’a Kabanova returns to Opera Holland Park for the 2017 summer season, starring Peter Hoare as Boris and Anne Mason as Kabanicha. Sian Edwards conducts the City of London Sinfonia, alongside a cast that includes Nicky Spence as Tichon, Clare Presland as Varvara and Julia Sporsén in the title role.
Prior to his performances in Kat’a Kabanova, Peter appeared as Laca in Janáček’s earlier opera, Jenůfa at the inaugural season for Grange Park Opera’s new Theatre in the Woods.
Earlier this season Anne Mason appeared as Geneviève Pelleas et Mélisande at Scottish Opera and Mrs Grose Turn of the Screw at the Opéra National du Rhin.
The production opens on 15 July with performance running on 19, 21, 26 and 28 July.
