Content and physical description
ContentVladimír Vaněk writes to Ricordi publishing house as his friend, Bohuslav Martinů, sent his opera [ARIADNE, H 370] for their opera competition which was held in Venice [sic; see letter VanV 1959-01-29] last year. As the competition is anonymous, BM cannot ask himself about its outcome. Having received no information so far, he would still like to know a little about how the competition went and possibly receive his opera back. VV would be very grateful if Ricordi would let him know if the competition took place and who received the first prize.
