The star casting goes on with Natalya Romaniw, who was 2016's Tatyana in Eugene Onegin at Garsington and Liza in Opera Holland Park's Queen of Spades. Romaniw, who is from Swansea, owes her distinctive surname to her Ukrainian grandfather, who settled in Wales during the second world war. In the title role, she plays the young village woman who is adored by Steva's half brother, with catastrophic results.
As the envious Laca, who disfigures Jenufa in his despair about her misplaced affections, is Andrew Rees. Presiding over this domestic tragedy is Susan Bullock as the fierce stepmother, the Kostelnicka, whose desperate measures bring the opera to its tragic end.
Katie Mitchell's production was first staged by Welsh National Opera production from 1998; the revival director is Robin Tebbutt. It is conducted by William Lacey, with designs by Vicki Mortimer.
Jenufa is sung in Czech.
