Leoš Janáček The Makropulos Case Edinburgh International Festival

Leoš Janáček The Makropulos Case at the Edinburgh International Festival. Juliet William's review in Opera Today; 

 "A mysterious diva, Emilia Marty, appears in town, transfixing all males who cross her path. In addition to her spell-binding powers, she appears to have mysterious knowledge of the matters of the case, to the consternation of the male company. Played out is a contrast between masculinity and femininity; logical and intuition; the tangible and the supernatural."
