The only work by him that I can remember is the "New World" symphony.

Is that arcade over just his grave or over a complex?

The "New World" is probably his best known in the US, for a variety of reasons (including that Huntley-Brinkley used to use a selection from it as their theme music, which certainly made the news seem even more dramatic).

The arcade is over an entire section of graves. I would assume that these were higher-rent. In my haste to get the thing up, I failed to note that the grave is at Vyšehrad along with that of Smetana and many other Czech notables.

People pay rent even when they're dead? That means I will have to get an afterlife job! And I can imagine the kind of work that you get in a graveyard... Dig big holes, cut the ivy and mow the lawn, over and over and over. I hate gardening. What a bummer! At least there is an arcade.
