Experience Leoš Janáček's opera, Jenůfa, which tells a story of honour, love, and sacrifice, delving into the complexities of societal judgement within a tight-knit community.

Jenůfa is caught in a web of affection from two half-brothers. Secretly pregnant by one of them, she faces the challenges alone. With only her stepmother's assistance, she gives birth in secrecy. Unaware of the child, the second brother pledges to marry Jenůfa. However, tragedy strikes as their wedding approaches.

This Olivier Award-winning production, directed by David Alden, sets Jenůfa's story in a 20th-century industrial estate in the heart of the Eastern Bloc, offering a contemporary twist that resonates with today's audiences.

Conducted by the maestro Keri-Lynn Wilson, the opera features a stellar cast including soprano Jennifer Davis in her role debut as Jenůfa, Richard Trey Smagur in his ENO debut as Laca, alongside luminaries Susan Bullock as Kostelnička, and ENO Harewood Artist John Findon as Steva.
