“In Czech with English subtitles.

A monument of 20th century opera, Jenufa has been called the piece with which Janacek conquered the world. The drama centres on the complex relationship between two formidable women – Jenufa and her stepmother – and the consequences when Jenufa has a child out of wedlock.

Fusing folk harmonies with the rhythms of the Czech language, Janacek creates a distinctive musical voice that is at once lush and gritty, radiant and haunting.”
