The Tale of Tsar Saltan


Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov "The Tale of Tsar Saltan, of His Son the Renowned and of the Beautiful Swan-Princess" (opera in a prologue and four acts)

One of the most sunny pieces of the world opera literature. Full of easy humor, it recreates charming features of a cheerful fairy tale by Pushkin, whose plot underlies the libretto. However, behind the unpretentiousness of the plot there is significant sense reflecting Russian political reality of the end of the 19th century. Intrigues of sisters of the young tsarina result in that she is sent in exile to a faraway island with her son Gwidon, but there, with the help Swan Princesses, the rescued Gwidon becomes the governor of the fine magic city where they are found by tsar Saltan who did not know about the plot. He is so overjoyed that he forgives the sisters of the tsarina.
