SOUNDING THE CENTURY
From the New Theatre,
Cardiff. Conductor Daniel
Harding makes his British operatic debut tonight with the Chorus and Orchestra of Welsh National Opera. Janacek's Jenufa is a passionate story of jealousy, human misfortune and the redeeming power of love. At the heart of the opera is a child's short life and early death. Jenufa's baby is illegitimate, born to her in secret in her stepmother's house. In her attempt to give Jenufa a chance of marriage, her stepmother tries to persuade the father to marry Jenufa; but when she fails, she kills Jenufa's baby. In his setting of Gabriela
Preissova's play, Janacek evokes the claustrophobic atmosphere of peasant life in 19th-century Moravia.
