Leos Janacek: Jenufa

Some operatic works are an overnight success; others are slow burners. Janácek’s JENUFA is a classic example of the latter, with the acclaim coming a full twelve years after the opera’s premiere in Brno in 1904. Today, the female characters at the heart of the work are considered dream roles for the world’s leading singers, and we are delighted to present Evelyn Herlitzius as the verger’s widow and Rachel Harnisch as Jenufa.
