    Great one! And it reminded me of another Czech opera, Schwanda the Bagpiper by Jaromir Weinberger. In it, Schwanda is taken down to hell to entertain the devil with his bagpipes in a witty, brilliant scene.

    For me, the greatest modern example of the classic morality play: An ordinary everyman fights a battle with temptation in the form of the Devil -- and loses.

    Parts of the slow movement of Bruckner 9 seem hellish, but it resolves at the end.

    Kancheli's Styx is a sort of requiem for parted artists. It pictures the famous rive that divides our world from the underworld. Schnittke's Faust Cantata is a crazy piece of music and great fun ... but Hell is there.

    Then there are the obvious example - Don Giovani being taken to hell in Mozart's opera and so on.
