Quotes & Highlights
Winner of the 2007 Olivier Award for Best Opera
“There are some nights at the opera when director and designer, cast and conductor, composer and masterpiece coalesce into something so powerful, so affecting, so right as to transcend memories of the most vivid previous productions. Such is the thrilling case with David Alden’s new staging of Janácek’s Jenufa.” —The Observer (UK)
Nowhere in opera is reality more raw and uncensored than in Jenufa, an intensely dramatic and deeply moving opera by the great Czech composer Leos Janácek. The innocent peasant girl Jenufa loves the town’s feckless playboy too passionately, and the devoted Laca loves her too jealously. Meanwhile, her self-righteous stepmother’s misguided style of tough love leads to tragic results.
When this riveting production premiered at the Metropolitan Opera, New York magazine praised director Olivier Tambosi: “He explores the characters’ actions with blistering intensity.” Jenufa promises an evening of gripping drama and compelling music you won’t soon forget.
