Hurvínek prodává nevěstu

Tatulda, how do you sell a bride? How did you figure out that someone would sell a bride, Hurvinka? Here I am reading: The National Theater Brno presents Bedřich Smetana's opera The Bartered Bride. So how's it going, baby? Well, you know, it's just like… how can I just… it's kind of a ploy to buy a bride for yourself. So now I'm stumped - is it selling or buying? You know what, Hurvajz, take Žeryk and Mánička and we'll go to the opera, that'll be easier than explaining it to you!

Would you also like to know what it is like to sell a bride? Smetana's Bartered Bride is one of the iconic opera pieces, but this time we decided to bring it closer to children in particular. And because a comic opera should be really fun, the members of the Janáček Opera NdB troupe invited the best possible guides among themselves. In the new family show, the famous puppet characters Spejbl with Hurvínek and Mánička will take you directly to the Bartered Bride and the world of opera. There will be Žeryk and the best musical pieces too, because the favorite puppets will be assisted by the soloists of Janáček's opera NdB together with our special Smetánov mini-orchestra.

Premiere: November 24, 2023 at the Reduta Theater


Discussion with Hurvínek after the performance Hurvínek sells a bride!

Come with your children to reflect on your joint experience from the opera performance Hurvínek sells a bride, using a discussion with Hurvínek, Mánička, Spejble, and maybe Žeryk will join as well. With the help of questions and answers, we will find out if we have understood everything in the performance. We will also give space to our youngest viewers to ask Hurvínek themselves, and not only about the opera!

We look forward to seeing you after selected performances of the production Hurvínek sells the bride in the Mozart Hall of the Reduta Theater. The event is intended for visitors to the given performance for free!
