In the words of Jaroslav Hašek and accompanied by the sounds from Antonin Dvořák, our SOAP follows the two most famous Czechs to their native country. Dvořák’s “Humoresque” became a worldwide hit. And yet the “Dumka” was more characteristic of the master from Central Bohemia: the constant change between dolefulness and infectious cheerfulness. What else could the Czech people of his time do but take the political gagging with absurd humour? Ten years after Dvořák’s death, the good soldier Švejk gets into trouble with the Austro-Hungarian administration and nearly unhinges the cruel courts and secret police with his nonsense. A dream part for Heinz Marecek.
