Janáček’s Jenůfa

11th January 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 14th January 2024 @ 7:00 pm

Janáček’s searing opera explores a woman’s limited options in a suffocating small town. Jenůfa is pregnant, but she isn’t married. In her mountain village, this means disgrace, or even death. Her stepmother, Kostelnička, wants to help her, but what should she do?

Janáček pondered his characters’ predicament for many years. The opera he eventually completed is a blazing vision of human suffering and redemption, rooted in the rhythms of everyday life.
