'Jenůfa' is cancelled due to Covid-19
Czech composer Janácek created grittily realistic operas that are grounded in the realities of early 20th century rural life. 'Jenůfa' follows two women who try to conceal an illicit pregnancy in a small town, exploring themes of romance and reputation. Claus Guth directs this Royal Opera staging, the latest in its string of new Janácek productions. Karita Mattila and Asmik Grigorian will sing its central roles.
