    Gotta have the St. Basil scene. I don't really care for the Kromny Forest scene at all.

    Theatre, a forum for public debate, an arena for cathartic spectacle and somewhere for vain bitchy people to show off in front of big crowds!

    I'm really enjoying delving into Janacek's operas at the moment, and this wonderful recording of Kat'a Kabanova is no exception. Gorgeous playing from the Vienna Phil under Mackerras, with Søderstrøm giving a superb, sympathetic performance of Kat'a. I don't know Mackerras's second recording of the opera, with Benackova as Kat'a and the Czech Philharmonic, but this one is eminently satisfying.
