A record attendance of 16,000 spectators saw an open-air performance of Bedřich Smetana’s opera The Bartered Bride in Prague on Sunday. The opera was staged in an amphitheatre located in a valley on the outskirts of the capital; the event’s tradition goes back to 1913, and was revived eight years ago.
