Boston Lyric Opera & Opera Philadelphia
To love, laughter, and happily ever after! Svadba, a new cinematic opera experience produced by Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) and co-produced with Opera Philadelphia, tells the story of a bride-to-be on the eve of her marriage, as four of her closest friends and a family elder gather to help her celebrate and prepare for the big event.
Premiering January 28 on both BLO’s operabox.tv and the Opera Philadelphia channel (operaphila.tv), the film combines Serbian composer Ana Sokolović’s mesmerizing a capella music and text with a new dance-led visual interpretation by film director Shura Baryshnikov and screenwriter Hannah Shepard. Slovenia-born Daniela Candillari conducts the music – a stunning showcase of six voices.
WHERE TO WATCH
Svadba debuts January 28, 2022 on BLO’s operabox.tv. On-demand viewing is $15.
