The scene of The Bartered Bride is laid in a Bohemian village on the afternoon and evening of the Patron Saint's Day. The action takes place during the first half of the nineteenth century. The outline of the story is as follows: Marie (Marenka), the pretty daughter of a peasant couple is promised in marriage to Wenzel- (Vashek-son. of Micha, a wealthy farmer) whom she has never seen. She objects to the suit because she is already in love with Hans (Jenik). whose doubtful parentage and position make him a less desirable match.
The marriage broker Ketsal intrigues on her parents' behalf to bring off the union between Marie and the rich but stupid Wenzel. As these two have never met, Marie easily contrives to conceal her identity and put Wenzel off the track.
But meanwhile the marriage broker persuades Hans to relinquish his chance of obtaining Marie by accepting a bribe to give her up-on condition that her bridegroom shall be Micha's son. The usual complications follow, but in the last act Micha recognises in Hans his long-lost elder son, and a-s the marriage-contract only calls for Marie to marry ' the son of Micha', she is now. free to choose between Hans and Wenzel, which she does to everybody's satisfaction.
