Rachmaninov's first one-act opera was written in 1893 while still a student at the Moscow Conservatory. The opera, with a libretto by Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko after a play by Alexander Pushkin, was given its premiere in May 1893 at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre. Rachmaninov's characteristic writing is already apparent, complete with the colorful orchestration that was a hallmark of his compositional style. This score is a digitally enhanced reprint of the one first issued by Muzgiz (the USSR State Publisher) in the 1950s.
