Opera Tuesday: The Bartered Bride – Smetana – Garsington Opera


Available for a limited time


When a spirited peasant girl is promised to a stranger, she uses every last ounce of cunning and charm to thwart her parents’ plans and get the man she actually loves.

From the vibrant overture to the riotous polka, Smetana places dance at the heart of his sparkling work.
