The Bartered Bride (Czech: Prodaná nevěsta, The Sold Bride) is a comic opera in three acts by the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana, to a libretto by Karel Sabina. The work is generally regarded as a major contribution towards the development of Czech music.

The opera was not immediately successful, but in its final version, premiered in Protected content , it rapidly gained popularity and eventually became a worldwide success.
Until this time, the Czech national opera had only been represented by minor, rarely performed works. This opera, Smetana's second, was part of his quest to create a truly Czech operatic genre.

Smetana's musical treatment made considerable use of traditional Bohemian dance forms, such as the polka and furiant.

Many of these early international performances were in German, under the title Die verkaufte Braut, translation by Max Kalbeck which is what we will be hearing on the 10th of January (with English subtitles).
