Jenůfa (2014)

Leoš Janáček

Finnish star soprano Karita Mattila continues her series of unforgettable interpretations of Janáček. This searing description of a young woman's fate is among the most important operatic works of the 20th century.

Jenůfa is carrying Števa's child, but Laca won't leave her be. Rejected, Laca destroys Jenůfa's beauty with a slash of his knife. Who would want a woman with a scar on her face and a child born out of wedlock? Jenůfa's foster mother feels impelled to make a cruel choice. Leoš Janáček's music reflects both the oppressive atmosphere of the small rural village and the good cheer of folk music. Karita Mattila herself portrays the young conflict-torn Jenůfa.
