Here’s to love, laughter, and happily ever after! Svadba, a new cinematic opera experience, tells the story of a bride-to-be on the eve of her wedding as four of her closest friends and an elder family member gather to help her prepare for the big event. This chamber opera dramatizes the ritual of preparing for marriage, the importance of preserving tradition, and the true power of friendship and community. Sung completely a cappella, Svadba’s mesmerizing music by Serbian composer Ana Sokolović combines with dance-led visuals from film director Shura Baryshnikov and screenwriter Hannah Shepard. Slovenia-born Daniela Candillari conducts the music.
