Anguish Becoming Grace, in Janacek's 'Jenufa'

THE INTRO





THE HIT SINGLE: Jenufa's Prayer

In Act Two, a confused Jenufa (soprano Kristine Opolais) wakes from a drugged sleep to find her newborn baby missing. As she sings a profoundly moving prayer for the child, Kostelnicka (soprano Michaela Martens) returns to tell her that the infant has died.
