Uniform titleKaterina Izmaĭlova (Motion picture)
Abstract A brutal story, yet including some lyrical and even satirical moments, this opera was once banned in the former U.S.S.R. Katerina, unhappily married to a merchant (Zinovy), takes one of his workmen (Sergei) as her lover. She poisons her obnoxious father-in-law (Boris), and with Sergei's help, kills Zinovy. The crime is discovered and the two are sent to Siberia. When Sergei deserts her for one of the other women convicts (Sonetka), Katerina plunges both Sonetka and herself into the river.
General noteFilm adaptation of the opera by D. Shostakovich; libretto and screenplay by the composer, after the novel, "Lady Macbeth of the Mtzensk district" by N. Leskov.
