More than Moldau. Smetana's great comedy: Marenka is to be married off. The marriage broker proposes the wealthy, stuttering imbecile Vašek. Complications, confusion on the village square – with a circus troupe included. Glorious, very powerful music with a Czech folk-song flair. A delightful opera, which, thanks to Thomas Langhoff's staging, does not slip into a dull folklore cliché. Simply delicious and delightful!
