Also see . . .  The Wedding (1901 play) (Wikipedia). "The Wedding (Polish: Wesele) is a defining work of Polish drama written at the turn of the 20th century by Stanisław Wyspiański. It describes the perils of the national drive toward self-determination following the two unsuccessful uprisings against the Partitions of Poland, in November 1830 and January 1863. The plot is set at the wedding of a member of Kraków intelligentsia (the Bridegroom), and his peasant Bride. Their class-blurring union follows a fashionable trend among friends of the playwright from the modernist Young Poland movement....shown multiple times on stage, this drama has had much influence on the Polish culture. It was made into a movie with the same title by the award-winning Polish film director, Andrzej Wajda, in 1972." (Submitted on June 20, 2018.)
