Libuše @ National Theatre
28. 10 2022 - 28. 10 2022
The speculations about whether Libuše is Bedřich Smetana’s most mature work within the context of his opera oeuvre, or even within the context of Czech opera in general, whether and how it can stand its ground as against the airiness of The Bartered Bride, the lyricism and absorptive power of Dvořák’s Rusalka, or the emotion and drama of Leoš Janáček’s operas, do not result in definitive conclusions — it will always depend on the angle of vision from which Libuše and any other renowned Czech opera is assessed.
