Thursday’s Something Else (Smetana)

tseOh dear… why have I waited this long? Prodaná nevěsta is majorly entertaining. I liked it so much I listened to/watched it twice. The traditional Czech production recreates Central European visuals to go with the unmistakable Central European sound. And, you know, how can you say no to a wedding comedy? Stuff of legend. This setting also integrates dancing numbers much better than grand opera.
