In the opera King Svatopluk, which tells the story from the Great Moravian period, Eugen Suchon combines its historical and mythological dimension into one organic unit. Musically, he applies mainly the principles of dynamic form. The aesthetic and artistic functions are closely related to non-aesthetic and particularly ethical one. Suchon develops his modern drama about contradictory personality on the background of unified historical and mythical events.
