About the Event
We invite members and their guests to join us and enjoy a night of extraordinary music in Barbican Hall.
Jenůfa, Janáček’s searing and magnificent opera, explores a woman’s limited options in a suffocating small town.
Jenůfa is pregnant, but she isn’t married. In her mountain village, this means disgrace or even death. Her stepmother, Kostelnička, wants to help her, but what should she do?
Janáček pondered his characters’ predicament for many years. The opera he eventually completed is a blazing vision of human suffering and redemption, rooted in the rhythms of everyday life.
