This review is from: Janácek: Jenufa (Audio CD)
I was lucky enough to see this performed at Covent Garden, and I floated home afterwards.
Everything about it was wonderful, the sets and costumes, the orchestral playing, Bernard Haitink's farewell, and the acting and singing simply superb.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. I just wish the cameras had been there to record it so I could have it on BLu Ray.
I told myself that if I were never able to go to the opera again, it wouldn't matter, as I had seen perfection.
Never before have I seen standing ovations at each interval, as well as at the end of a performance. And they were well deserved!
