Bedřich Smetana’s Bartered Bride is the founding work of modern Czech opera

Czech original version with English and German surtitles 

The Bartered Bride by Bedřich Smetana managed to exceed the domestic framework and became a permanent part of the world’s operatic repertoire. The grotesque yet highly moving story is grasped with tenderness, intelligent wit and hyperbole, as well as an understanding for the long-gone order (disorder) of human lives in the Czech village

Performed by:

Soloists of the National Theatre Orchestra
National Theatre Opera Choir
Continuo Theatre members under the leading of the Artistic Director Pavel Štourač
Members of the Kühn's Childrens Choir
