Originally composed to celebrate Pushkinís centenary, the full title of the work - The Tale of Tsar Saltan, of His Son the Renowned and Mighty Bogatyr Prince Gvidon Saltanovich, and of the Beautiful Princess-Swan - is indicative of the fantastical content of the opera. It is an old-fashioned Russian treat for the eyes and the ears from the countryís most long-standing musical institution. Filled with colourful music, typical of Rimsky-Korsakovís style, it is also the source of the instantly-recognisable 'Flight of the Bumblebee', which arrives when the magic Swan-Princess changes Prince Gvidon Saltanovich into an insect.
"A rare old-fashioned Russian treat for the eyes and the ears" - British Theatre Guide
"This tale, of Tsar Saltan and the others, is truly fantastic" - Classical Source
