First Look: CCMONSTAGE ‘The Bartered Bride’

CCMONSTAGE Opera’s production of The Bartered Bride continues tonight, Nov. 22, through Sunday, Nov. 24, at Patricia Corbett Theater. This romantic comedy composed by Bedřich Smetana features a new English translation by CCM faculty member Kathleen Kelly. Get your first look at the opera in the slideshow below.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Part bubbly operetta and part Bohemian folk pageant, CCM sets The Bartered Bride in a Czech community in Texas in 1948. Mařenka is arranged to marry the son of a rich landowner, but she is in love with someone else. Defiantly, Mařenka vows before her parents that she will only accept her love, Jeník, as her husband. As her parents and the matchmaker fight for the arranged marriage, the young lovers fight against tradition in order to be together.

“This story lends itself wonderfully to being shaped from a modern point of view,” says CCM Artist Diploma student Audrey Chait, director of the opera. “This production explores what it means to be a young American immigrant, preserving the traditions of the old country while embracing a new way of life.”

CCM’s production is conducted by guest artist and CCM alumnus Levi Hammer and features a new English singing libretto by CCM Opera faculty member Kathleen Kelly. The opera’s original libretto is by Karel Sabina. The process of translation and adaptation started between Kelly and Chait in the summer. In order to make the translation more authentic to the immigrant experience, some text is left in the original Czech.

“In the spirit of realism, the folk songs are sung as-is, as are moments when characters do not want to filter their most urgent thoughts through a second language,” Chait adds.

Movers and Makers magazine named CCM’s production of The Bartered Bride a “must see” event of Cincinnati’s music and opera of the fall season. Read more about this season’s Opera Series in The News Record.

The 2019-20 CCMONSTAGE Opera Series presents The Bartered Bride on Nov. 22-24, 2019, at Patricia Corbett Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the CCM Box Office; student discounts are available.

Oscar Wilde’s Classic Comedy ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ Opens CCM’s 2019-20 Play Series

The CCMONSTAGE Play Series presents Wilde’s 19th-century satire about marriage, sex and gender politics on Oct. 2 (preview)-6, 2019. Tickets are on sale now.

CCM opens its new CCMONSTAGE Play Series with Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan, playing Oct. 3-6 with a preview performance on Wednesday, Oct. 2. Dubbed “smart, funny” by the San Francisco Chronicle, this 19th-century satire connects with modern audiences with its biting criticism of a hypocritical society.

“The play examines a time when reputation, gossip and social status were made and lost in the ballrooms and drawing rooms of the Victorian home,” says CCM Acting Professor Susan Felder, director of the production. “Social media moved slower, but it was still as rampant, reactive and harsh as a Twitter account.”

The play opens with plans for Lady Windermere’s coming of age party at 21 years old, but a rumor that her husband is having an affair with a mysterious woman taints the celebration. As she navigates through the Victorian double standards for men and women, Lady Windermere develops an altered understanding of what it means to be “respectable” and “good.”

Lady Windermere’s Fan was Oscar Wilde’s first theatrical success. Full of intrigue, secrets and shocking revelations, the comedy features one of the playwrights most famous lines: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Cincinnati Magazine named CCM’s production of Lady Windermere’s Fan a “can’t miss” event of Cincinnati’s arts season. Read more about this season’s Play Series in The News Record.

The 2019-20 CCMONSTAGE Play Series presents Lady Windermere’s Fan on Oct. 2 (preview)-6, 2019, at Patricia Corbett Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the CCM Box Office; student discounts are available.
