Waterperry Opera Festival 2022: Svadba ‘A Wedding’

About Svadba ‘A Wedding’

Waterperry Opera Festival 2022

Making its UK professional premiere, this women-led production of Ana Sokolović’s virtuosic a cappella opera Svadba, will be directed by Rebecca Meltzer (Mansfield Park, Hansel and Gretel, Ariel), conducted by Lada Valešová, and designed by Grace Venning.

Sung in Serbian, Svadba is a coming of age tour de force exploring the lives of six women as they discover how to navigate the poignant transition from adolescence to adulthood.

The action takes place the day before a wedding when the bride-to-be, Miliça, celebrates with her best friends. With complete abandonment and raw energy, Sokolović’s breath-taking score envelops us in a whirlwind of ritual, music and dance.
