Notes & Reviews:

The success of the symphonic poems 'Water Sprite', 'Midday Witch', 'Golden Spinning-wheel' and 'Pigeon', drawing on themes from folk ballads, encouraged Dvorak to seek inspiration for another opera in Czech popular fairy-tales. After historic themes and comical plots (Dimitri, The Jacobin, The Stubborn Lovers, etc.) the libretto deals with a Chod fairy-tale with all its salient features: the muddleheaded devil, the saucy Kate, who even gives Lucifer himself a piece of her mind, the shrewd shepherd Jirka, as well as justice that in the end is accorded to ordinary people - precisely thanks to the shepherd's adroitness and the gruesome authority of Hell.
