THE BARTERED BRIDE

Bedřich Smetana

Premiere Dec 15, 2022, 6.30 PM - Antonín Dvořák Theatre

Comic opera in three acts from 1866

logoInformace

Libretto by Karel Sabina (1813–1877)

Musical preparation Marek Šedivý
Stage director Jiří Nekvasil

The most popular Czech national opera and one of the best comic operas in the world repertoire returns to our stage after three years.
It was for the second time Bedřich Smetana and Karel Sabina created together, and they decided to work on a theme that proceeds from a village setting. Though the creative process culminating in opera was not easy, the joint work resulted in a piece abound in brilliant music, characterisation, and last but not least dazzling comedy.
Moreover, the opera, of course, is also fundamental as far as the history of our theatre is concerned—on 12 August 1919, the opera that was musically prepared by Emanuel Bastl and directed by Karel Kügler premiered on the stage of the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre, by which the theatre operation was launched. Since then, the opera has been staged on our stage in thirteen more productions.

Performed in the Czech original with Czech and English subtitles.

A co-production between the SNG Opera in balet Ljubljana.

 The production is prepared to be staged as a part of the Smetana Opera Cycle Ostrava 2024.
