Met and Juilliard Team Up for "The Bartered Bride"

Monday, September 20, 2010

The Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School have announced they'll collaborate -- for the first time -- on a production of Bedrich Smetana's "The Bartered Bride," premiering at Juilliard in February.

The performances, conducted by James Levine, will feature students from Juilliard's Institute for Vocal Arts and the Met's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. "'The Bartered Bride' is one of the great opera scores ever written," Levine said, in a news release announcing the new production. "I think it will be a wonderful learning opportunity for young artists."

The collaboration between the two programs was first created in 2008; according to the Met, the goal is to prepare young singers and musicials for successful opera careers. Performances of "The Bartered Bride" will begin at Juilliard in February and continue at the Met later this year.
