Notes & Reviews:
The opera Libuse occupies a unique position in Czech national culture. Smetana composed it as a festive opera to be performed on occasions celebrating the Czech Nation. The first such was the opening of the National Theatre in Prague in 1881, when the work was premiered. Supraphon now supplements its previous recordings of the opera with a hitherto unreleased on CD older studio recording from 1965, when under Jaroslav Krombholc the lead role was rendered by Nadezda Kniplova. The re-edition of this recording is part of the new Supraphon series titled Czech Opera Treasures, which aims to present recordings of complete operas not previously released on CD.
