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

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