Information

Janáček’s world-famous drama presents human relationships formed by the harsh environment of a self–contained rural community where one lives constantly under the watch of others. This plagues the life of Jenůfa and, above all, influences the conduct of her stepmother, Kostelnička (the Sacristian), who at any cost strives to maintain her position and the respect of the whole village. She does so through secretly murdering Jenůfa’s extramarital child.
A co-production with Opera Ireland Dublin and Latvias Nacionalas Opera Riga

The opera is staged in Czech original version and English and German surtitles are used in the performance.
