Dvořák,now! I used to love this opera with it's fairy tale plot.And I still do! Kate,the local battle axe,get's carried off to Hell & the devils just can't wait to get rid of her!! The music is great,too. Chock full of colourful orchestration & good tunes. The critic at Classics Today calls it "vastly entertaining" and I agree! For once,an opera with an entertaining plot that doesn't take itself too seriously,either. A great cast. I had the Lp set,originally. One minor gripe. I wish they'd kept the original 'artwork'. I liked the photo on the Lp set (see right). The Jacobin is another cracker! (There's a pun there,somewhere!)
