At Wednesday's final dress rehearsal of Kátya Kabanová, BLO artists brought Janáček's soaring, passionate score to life. Here's a special rehearsal sneak peek before tonight's opening—this is a Boston premiere that you won't want to miss!

Kátya Kabanová
March 13–22, 2015 | Citi Performing Arts Center Shubert Theatre
Conductor: David Angus
Stage Director: Tim Albery
Set & Costume Designer: Hildegard Bechtler
Lighting Designer: Peter Mumford

Kátya's only ally in the Kabanov household, Varvara (right, Sandra Piques Eddy) tempts Kátya (Elaine Alvarez, left) with a key to the garden and the promise of a fateful meeting with Boris, the object of Kátya's desire.
Kabanicha (Elizabeth Byrne), Kátya's domineering mother-in-law, engages in a private exchange with Dikoy (James Demler), a successful but mean-spirited merchant in the town.
Kátya longs for freedom in one of the opera's most transcendent moments.
