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
