Destiny (Janáček)
Destiny (also known as Fate, Czech: Osud) is an opera in three acts by Leoš Janáček
Leoš Janáček
to a Czech libretto by the composer and Fedora Bartošová. Janáček began the work in 1903 and completed it in 1907. The inspiration for the opera came from a visit by Janáček in the summer of 1903, after the death of his daughter Olga, to the spa at Luhačovice. There, Janáček met Kamila Urválková, who had been the subject of an opera by Ludvík Čelanský, Kamila, where she felt that Čelanský had falsely depicted her personality. After learning that Janáček was a composer, Urválková persuaded Janáček to write another opera to counteract Čelanský's portrait of her.[1] Janáček submitted the opera to the Brno
Brno
Theatre in 1906, and to the Vinohrady Theatre in Prague in 1907, but both theatres rejected the score

Jenůfa
Jenůfa  (Czech) (help·info) (Její pastorkyňa, "Her Stepdaughter" in Czech) is an opera in three acts by Leoš Janáček to a Czech libretto by the composer, based on the play Její pastorkyňa by Gabriela Preissová. It was first performed at the National Theatre, Brno
Brno
on 21 January 1904. It was written between 1896 and 1902,[1] and counts among the first operas written in prose.[2] The first of Janáček's operas in which his distinctive voice can clearly be heard, it is a grim story of infanticide and redemption. Like the playwright's original work, it is known for its unsentimental realism. While today it is heard in the composer's original version, Jenůfa's early popularity was due to a revised version by Karel Kovařovic, altering what was considered its eccentric style and orchestration
