The article deals with the compositional process of the opera Hedy. It looks for the moments which probably decided the final shape of the work, and assesses the strength of the expected, as well as real, reactions of the public, as well as the reviewers. The broad outlook from inspiration to reception, links Hedy with Fibich’s previous (Hippodamie and Boufie /The Tempest/) and following dramatic compositions (Šárka, Pád Arkuna /The Fall of Arkona/). The article aims to point out the essentials features of Hedy, and to clarify the reasons for the final shape of the work’s dramaturgy, in relation to its authors, as well as the time of its creation.
