The most popular Czech opera in a new stage adaptation for the Smetana’s Litomyšl National Festival is also the most frequently performed festival title. Bedřich Smetana composed it to a libretto by Karel Sabina in 1863-66; premiered on 30th May 1866 at the Provisional Theatre. Although “Prodanka” was an immediate success, the author repeatedly revised it until the final 4th version from 1870.

Presented in Czech with Czech, English and German surtitles.

“Why should we not rejoice when the Lord God gives us health!”

Why doesn’t the auditorium plan always start with the front row?

The size of the auditorium depends on the size of the production or the performing ensemble. For example, at the operas, the orchestra takes the place of the first non-elevated rows. The first row is thus row 9 or 10.
