Reviews & Press

Greek National Opera - Shostakovich - Lady Macbeth of Mtzensk - Katerina Lvovna Izmailova

The impressive Russian soprano Svetlana Sozdateleva, the Lady Macbeth of the title, created a compelling Katerina Ismailova, full of passion and urges, ready to do everything -even murder- and to accept the consequences, to free herself and live love. Following her movement and listening to her robust, shinning voice, we felt her inner struggle, the boredom next to her boring husband, the hatred for the tyrannous lustful father-in-law, the desire and jealousy for Sergei. She became the anti-hero that forces you to like her, even to give reason to her actions, exactly like Shostakovich would have liked.

Stadttheater Klagenfurt - Shostakovih - Lady Macbeth of Mtzensk

Uneingeschränkt glücklich wird man diesmal auch mit dem Sängerensemble: Svetlana Sozdateleva verausgabt sich darstellerisch und stimmlich bis an ihre Grenzen. Sie ist eine ungemein facettenreiche Katerina Ismailowa, von unbefriedigt über lasziv bis exzessiv.
