This drama about the desire for revenge, amorous passion and political intrigue is an extraordinary work to which it is not easy to find the key. British director David Pountney is one of the great admirers and promoters of Czech opera, who can bring a view that reveals the deepest layers of human drama.

Bedřich Smetana composed his third opera in 1866-67 and 16. On May 1868, he presided over its gala premiere at the New Town Theatre on the occasion of the laying of the foundation stone of the National Theatre.
