This event has passed

Sung in English with English titles.

A storm is coming…

When her husband leaves town on business, Katya is enticed by the advances of another man. Temptation proves impossible to resist and she embarks on an electric love affair. Wild with regret, when her husband returns, the storm in Katya’s heart finally breaks…

This highly-charged drama is driven by music that crackles with tension and eroticism, as the characters are drawn ever-closer to a final confrontation.



‘…the sheer ecstatic incandescence of the sound was at times almost agonisingly overwhelming.’

The Telegraph (2007)

‘…unforgettable, and you need to see it.’

The Guardian (2007)

‘…heartrending…superbly realised.’

The Stage (2007)
