General Information


An original production of Hamburgische Staatsoper

When the righteous sin, can they be forgiven? “Invariably daring and original, characterized by her fierce commitment to the moment” (Opera News), Karita Mattila returns to portray one of Janáček’s most vivid characters—a domineering stepmother forced to deal with her unwed stepdaughter’s pregnancy—who is driven to perform a monstrous act.
Soprano Malin Byström makes her Company debut as Jenůfa, a woman who discovers the transformative power of love and forgiveness. Janáček virtuoso Jiří Bělohlávek conducts this intense, pulsating score.

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
