The acclaimed collaboration between director Nikolaus Lehnhoff and conductor Andrew Davis once more ensures great success in this new production from the 1989 Glyndebourne festival's Janacek cycle. Tobias Hoheisel was on hand once more as stage designer, creating excitingly expressive and colourful sets. "Expressive focus and visual heightening came to culmination in a faultless ensemble that tackled every requirement with a will, producing an astonishing Slavic timbre and, in the central roles, revealing a capacity for characterisation wholly unique to Janacek. Both Anja Silja and an incomparable Roberta Alexander in the title role held us spellbound. Philip Langridge (Laca) and Mark Baker (Steva), whose European debut will hopefully lead to invitations from the larger German opera houses, were no less impressive than the two ladies." (H. Thomas Wohlfahrt, Das Opernglas). Glyndebourne's new musical director, Andrew Davis, conducted this most recent adaptation of Jenufa, arranged by Charles Mackerras and John Tyrell.
