The Rake’s Progress, an opera in three acts, is based on the eight paintings by William Hogarth that Stravinsky saw on 2 May 1947 in a Chicago exhibition. The opera depicts the decline and fall of Tom Rakewell, who deserts Anne Trulove for the delights of London in the company of Nick Shadow, the Devil. Due to the Shadow’s misadventures, Tom ends up in London’s Bedlam, a hospital for the ‘insane’. The moral: “For idle hearts, hands and minds the Devil finds work to do.”
