Misc. Comments

Sibley only has the overture "Dramatic Overture", B.16a at present. The overture, separated from the opera as Dramatic or Tragic Overture (and recorded so), has a separate Wikipedia entry.

Key of ov.: main section begins in B minor (though with a persistent A in the bass, this is fairly clear from the melody- this was Dvořák's most Wagnerian period.) Overture ends in C.
