  • Mařenka, their daughter — soprano
  • Mícha, a landowner — bass
  • Háta, his wife — mezzo-soprano
  • Vašek, their son — tenor

Version History

  • Composed for solo voices, chorus and orchestra, 1863–66 (= 1st version)
  • Revised by Smetana, 1866
after the first two performances, a "Gypsy ballet" borrowed from The Brandenburgers in Bohemia was introduced to replace a duet for Esmerelda and the Circus Master
  • Further revised by Smetana, 1868–69 (= 2nd version)
Act I was divided into two scenes, with a new drinking chorus in the second scene, a new polka at the start of Act II, and an extended version of Mařenka’s final solo
  • Further revised by Smetana, 1869 (= 3rd version)
now in 3 acts, the first of which concluded with the polka and a new furiant; Act III included a new skočná (replacing the 'Gypsy ballet'), and a new march to introduce the circus troupe
  • Further revised by Smetana, 1870 (= 4th version)
in the final 'definitive' version, new recitatives replaced spoken dialogue, and the furiant was moved from the end of Act I to after the drinking chorus in Act II
