Janácek’s Jenufa is a dramatic opera of sacrifice, love, loss and redemption.

Two brothers love the same woman, Jenufa. The one who loves her for her beauty alone finds his love requited, while the one who truly loves her is shunned. When Jenufa is found to be pregnant, the truth of the situation starts to make itself known.
