The Opera Event of the Summer
SMETANA’S The Bartered Bride
The Bartered Bride is a comedic tale, steeped in tradition, full of poignant moments and expansive Czech melodies. The lovely young Mařenka doesn’t want an arranged marriage, so the marriage broker is tricked into a contract that allows her to be betrothed to her true love. Lively dancing by the State Street Ballet and a colorful circus create an atmosphere all ages can enjoy. Conducted by "Opera's 25-year old hope" (The New York Times) Matthew Aucoin.
