Smetana: The Bartered Bride

Jiří Belohlávek turns to one of the great keystones of Czech opera for his final festive celebration of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s 80th season. Smetana’s comic opera, with its potent blend of Bohemian dances, heartfelt melodies and flamboyant Czech spirit, achieved global success in the 1870s and has remained in the international repertoire ever since. The BBC SO’s Chief Conductor conducts a mostly Czech cast.
