Part bubbly operetta and part Bohemian folk pageant, The Bartered Bride is a romantic comedy set in a Czech community in Texas in 1948. Marenka is arranged to marry the son of a rich landowner, but she is in love with someone else. Defiantly, Marenka vows before her parents that she will only accept her love, Jeník, as her husband. As her parents and the matchmaker fight for the arranged marriage, the young lovers fight against tradition in order to be together.
