About Jenufa

Janácek movingly captures Jenufa’s progression from hope to despair to eventual radiant happiness, while her stepmother, the Kostelnicka, is one of opera’s most complex and sympathetic maternal figures. Award-winning director Claus Guth stages the first production of Jenufa at Covent Garden since 2001. Former Music Director of Glyndebourne Vladimir Jurowski makes a long-awaited return to The Royal Opera conducting a stunning score infused with the folk music of Janácek’s native Moravia, with rising star Asmik Grigorian as Jenufa and Karita Mattila as the Kostelnicka.
