The NBR New Zealand Opera’s production of Janacek’s Jenufa is wonderful. Do try to see it. 

I like familiar classics. I reserve my judgement on musical novelty and under-discovered works.

So when Jenufa in the first act showed herself as an airhead, throwing herself at a pompous prat,  the singing and the music couldn’t redeem it for me..

The second and third acts set that right. The music and singing were glorious. I was sorry when each ended.
