House of the Dead, From The

House of the Dead, From The (Z Mrtvého Domu). Opera in 3 acts by Janáček to his own lib. based on Dostoyevsky's novel (1862) about his experiences in prison. Comp. 1927–8. Prod. Brno 1930, Edinburgh 1964, London 1965, NY 1990. Part of orch. prelude was taken by Janáček from unfinished vn. conc. (1927–8) to be called Pilgrimage of the Soul (Putováné dušičky). Problem arises over final 17 bars of this opera inserted by O. Zitek, B. Bakala, and O. Chlubna at the f.p. (1930) which is choral and optimistic; Janáček's orig. ending was more realistic, with an orch. epilogue of 27 bars, and this has been restored in perfs. cond. by Mackerras, Armstrong, and others.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates.

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
