Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Devil and Kate was written in 1899, soon after Dvorak returned from America where he had composed his great symphony "From The New World'. Although known primarily for this symphonic works, Dvorak's first real love was always opera. As with all his work, The Devil and Kate is rooted in the folk stories and music of his native Bohemia. This is the story of a Bohemian girl who loves to dance-and dances with the devil. An evil princess, the devil disguised as a handsome gamekeeper and a brave shepherd who volunteers to rescue Kate, are the protagonists in comic adventures which take them, literally, to Hell and back!
