A RIVALRY OF BROTHERS

All eyes in the village are on Jenůfa. Her fiancé sees only a trophy wife. Her rejected suitor sees a chance to avenge the most cutting wrongs in his past. Her righteous stepmother sees her own life’s tragedy about to play out again for her child. The results are two unspeakable crimes which lead to the opera’s true theme—that the wounds of troubled lives can be assuaged through acceptance, forgiveness, and hope. Janáček’s music pulses with vibrant rhythms, pungent harmonies, and lyrical declamation.

Johannes Debus conducts David Alden’s English National Opera staging, which won the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Production. In its 2016 revival, The Independent gave it a ★★★★★ review, headlining it as “brilliantly effective.” The Sunday Times proclaimed, “This revival takes (Alden’s) coruscating music-drama a notch higher… Janáček’s uplifting conclusion is one of the most beautiful ‘happy ends’ in opera.”

Witness love’s triumph.
