A bold and powerful drama, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk follows the downfall of a bored provincial merchant’s wife who seeks solace in an extra-marital affair. With a contemporary setting, the staging provides the perfect backdrop to this 20th-century opera’s unflinching approach to sex and violence.

Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk plays a limited season from 26 September 2015 until 20 October 2015 at the London Coliseum
