Apparently Jenufa is going to play in Nantes around my birthday next month, and while opera usually fails to interest me, im a janacek fan, so im going to see if i can get some cheapish tickets these next few days.

Any reviews of the opera? i understand its one of his earlish works in the genre and in general, and i tend to favor his later work, so im not so sure if the material will have the same sharpness and originality that i normally enjoy, but i've read it was a sort of breakthrough for the composer (and it is janacek), so im not concerned about quality.

Go. I like his later work too but...Go. It's a masterpiece.
