“Background Czech – Surprising Discoveries in Czech Opera”

Bedřich SMETANA and Czech Nationalism

We will explore some excerpts from his inspiring “LIBUSE”, his comic “THE TWO WIDOWS” and we will, of course, focus on his perennial-favourite folk-opera “THE BARTERED BRIDE”.

The Bartered Bride (Czech: Prodaná nevěsta, The Sold Bride) is a comic opera in three acts. The work is generally regarded as a major contribution towards the development of Czech music. It was composed during the period 1863 to 1866, and first performed at the Provisional Theatre, Prague, on 30 May 1866 in a two-act format with spoken dialogue.

All lectures on Zoom
