does "Hudební hra" translate closer to our "opera" or our notion of "musical", really? Ah well. Never mind.

There's a recording on Supraphon (and yes, I aim to listen to it), available on NML as of 2017, but we do need a score (if only of orchestral excerpts- not reduced), free and legal recording, libretto, or something legitimate up here if this page is not to be deleted?
