Grammy Award Nominee 2006 'Best Opera Recording' Following the internationally applauded recording of 'The Magic Flute', which was an 'Editor's Choice' in Gramophone, Sir Charles Mackerras returns to conduct Smetana's 'The Bartered Bride'. This is Mackerras' eighth recording on the Opera in English label, and marks the 10th anniversary of the collaboration between Chandos and the Peter Moores Foundation. Susan Gritton and Diana Montague head a remarkable cast. This is the only complete recording of the work available in English on CD.
