The Two Widows in Šárka 2022

The Opera in Šárka is already a proven opera festival where thousands of spectators gather every year. As part of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU, the Natural Theatre in Šárka will present Smetana's opera Two Widows, which is written as an adaptation of Jean Pierre F. Mallefill's French comedy Les deus veuves. This performance will be an opportunity to highlight and recall the importance of our EU Presidency for a large audience.

The Two Widows in Šárka 2022

Basic information

The Czech Republic, Sweden and France are closely linked by the person of Bedřich Smetana, who has been a generally recognized founder of distinctive Czech national music since the 19th century. For example, his The Bartered Bride was performed in 2009 by the National Opera de Paris in honor of the handover of the EU Council Presidency by France to the Czech Republic. And it was Sweden where Bedřich Smetana went after tragic life experiences and there he spent five successful seasons of his work as a conductor and pedagogue (composing Richard III., Wallenstein's camp, and Hakon Jarl, among other).
