The Bartered Bride on the Stages of the Provisional Theater, Estates Theater and National Theater from 1868 to 2018
The performance The Bartered Bride on the Stages of the Provisional Theatre, Estates Theatre and National Theatre from 1868 to 2018 maps the path of a Czech actor through history. The performance is based on the authentic situations the actors had to go through. The starting point was historical moments that happened on the stage of the National Theatre, when no play was performed, but the stage served political purposes. There is one opera that goes almost unchanged through history. A piece that has often been played in critical moments - the Bartered Bride by Bedřich Smetana. A poetic picture of the Czech countryside, which never existed. A story of love, betrayal, and intrigue. But what does it say now? On what grounds does the Czech theatre or the Czech identity stand?

The Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague has been training young theatre actors since 1946. The backbone of the academy is nowadays comprised of the Departments of Dramatic Theatre and the Alternative and Puppet Theatre. Apart from these traditional subjects, the school also offers relatively new specializations, such as theatre in unconventional environments (i.e. site–specific). Our actors, directors, stage designers, dramaturgists as well as theatre theorists, critics, teachers, producers, and other graduates easily find engagement not only in leading Czech theatres but also at alternative scenes and other institutions. The academy's theatre studio DISK is a popular scene for both faculty members and the Prague public.
