The Bartered Bride
July 23 - July 27, 2014
With hidden identities, secret bargains, and a dancing bear, can love possibly find its way?
Join Boston Midsummer Opera for Smentana's comic masterpiece whose infectious tunes, rollicking ensembles, and inventive humor have long made it an audience favorite. Having premiered in 1866, by the mid-1870s The Bartered Bride was arguably - and may still be - the most popular Czech opera of all time.
The Bartered Bride will be performed in a new English translation by J.D. McClatchy.
