Opera North: The Bartered Bride

Music, Classical and opera

Daniel Slater's production of Smetana's comedy tale of young love triumphing over cynical calculation

As one of The Lowry’s partner companies, Opera North always mix their touring programme to bring something well-loved and something less well known. ‘The Bartered Bride’ is a perfect introduction to opera for those less well versed in the form, a jolly and comic tale of love triumphing over adversity, with some lovely folk tunes, dances which reflect the Bohemian setting and a spectacular circus scene.

What’s more, it's sung in English, so you couldn’t ask for a better way in.
