Jenufa at the National Greek Opera


The Greek National Opera launches the 2018/19 season with Leoš Janáček’s Jenůfa, one of the most important masterpieces of the 20th century, that will be presented for the first time ever in Greece, on October 14th, conducted by Lukas Karytinos and directed by Nicola Raab.

Jenůfa, the “perfect opera”, as it was recently described by the Guardian, has exceeded the bounds of the modern repertory and has established itself in the world’s greatest opera houses, thanks to its lyricism and emotional honesty, its magnificent music by the great Czech composer Leoš Janáček, and its intensely dramatic and at the same time deeply humane storyline.

The three-act opera Jenůfa – which could be characterized as the Czech response to the Italian movement of verismo – is based on one of Janáček’s texts, which was in turn based upon Gabriela Preissová’s play Její pastorkyňa, [Her stepdaughter, 1890]. It is a story of raw realism in one of the first operas to have used unaltered literary prose.
