Description

"The Bartered Bride" is an opera written by the Czech composer Smetana, who lived in Gothenburg for five years. It is the first opera written in Czech as early as 1866. The opera is a comic story with romantic arias, lively choirs and Czech folk music. "The Bartered Bride" premieres later this autumn under the direction of Mellika Melouani Melani. She dusts off this Czech national romantic opera with the help of punk love, strong urges and violent revolt against the compulsion of norms.

The opera is in Swedish only. It is texted in Swedish and English.
