The mezzo-soprano Jana Hrochova, nee Štefačkova, gained her first singing experience in a children’s choir in the Moravian town of Šumperk. She studied at the Prague Conservatory with Jarmila Krasova from 1993 to 1999, in 2001 undertaking private study with the soprano Natalia Romanova. In 1998 she came second at the Czech Conservatories Singing Contest. Her first engagements were at the Estates Theatre of Prague Opera between 1997 and 2000, extending her activities to early music (with Ars Cameralis) and folk-music (with the Muzika Jara ensemble). In 2000 she was invited to join the opera company of the National Theatre in Brno, Czech Republic. The repertoire she has sung there includes Carmen (Carmen), Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Suzuki (Madama Butterfly), The Fox (The Cunning Little Vixen), Varvara (Kát’a Kaban-ová), Fenena (Nabucco), Hansel (Hänsel und Gretel), Nicklausse (The Tales of Hoffmann) and others. Guest performances have taken her to the Prague National Theatre, Prague State Opera, Plzeň, Usti nad Labem, Liberec, Ostrava, Olomouc (Czech Republic), the Košice State Theatre (Slovakia) and the Theater Freiburg (Germany). Her concert activities have brought collaboration with leading Czech orchestras and conductors. She is a regular guest at opera houses and on concert stages in Japan, Spain, Mexico, Greece, the Netherlands, Austria, Germany and Italy.
