Smetana's 2nd opera premiered at the Provisional Theatre in Prague. It consisted of two acts of spoken dialogue. Due to a public holiday, it was poorly attended and receipts failed to cover the costs. Even though it was not immediately successful, the work is considered a major contribution to the development of Czech music.
