The Macbeth story as played out in a troupe of baboons in Botswana? This fanciful idea inspired the writer Alexander McCall Smith and the composer Tom Cunningham to come up with their chamber opera, The Okavango Macbeth. Set in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana, the opera deals with the efforts of an ambitious female baboon, Lady Macbeth, to encourage her husband, Macbeth, to murder the dominant baboon, Duncan. The response to the opera’s premiere in the No 1 Ladies’ Opera House, led many to conclude that in this extraordinary and unusual tale a new operatic gem has emerged.

Orlova (organ)

Orchestra and Choir of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre, Alexander Lazarev


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Kirill Molchanov’s opera The Dawns Here Are Quiet.

The composer of the opera attained his nationwide fame thanks to, first of all, his lyrical songs, which are now considered a golden repertoire for academic and popular singers alike (There Are So Many Golden Lights, No Hiding from People in the Village, Here Come the Soldiers, Heart, Be Quiet and many others).

Meanwhile, Kirill Molchanov wrote eight operas to his own librettos, ballets Macbeth and Three Cards, and music for theatre productions and motion pictures, including true gems of the domestic cinematograph (It Happened in Penkovo, On Seven Winds, We’ll Live Till Monday).

The opera is based on Boris Vasiliev’s short novel of the same name. It is a stirring story of a tragic demise of young female anti-aircraft gunners first published in 1969, which is still one of the most widely read books about the Great Patriotic War. In 1972, Stanislav Rostotsky’s famous film with music by Kirill Molchanov premiered in cinemas across the country.

The opera is composed in a simple and accessible language. However, Zhenya’s romance to the poem 'Wait for Me' by Konstantin Simonov is the most popular piece from the opera - without any direct link to the plot, this fragment is a generalized symbol of millions of people whose lives and feelings were cut short by the war.

This recording of the opera was made in 1976 by the artists, choir and orchestra of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre featuring leading soloists of the opera company - Galina Kalinina, Galina Borisova, Klara Kadinskaya, Artur Eisen and others. Conducted by Alexander Lazarev.

Bolshoi Theatre Choir and Orchestra, Alexander Melik-Pashayev


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of a wonderful but now so rarely performed lyric and comic opera - Tchaikovsky’s Cherevichki.

The opera was initially named 'Vakula the Smith'. In 1874, Tchaikovsky won a competition announced by the Russian Music Society for the best opera to a libretto by Yakov Polonsky based on the famous story 'Christmas Eve' by Nikolai Gogol from his collection 'Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka'. However, Tchaikovsky was left displeased with his piece and reworked it in 1887. The opera was then staged at the Bolshoi Theatre, and the first night of Cherevichki became Tchaikovsky’s debut as a conductor.

Gogol was one of Tchaikovsky’s favourite authors. The composer liked to stay in the Ukraine, in his sister’s manor Kamenka. Tchaikovsky brought to life the characters from Gogol’s story, their lives, legends and emotions, with the help of folk tunes, dance rhythms and expressive lyric intonations. The opera also has a gallant intermezzo - the scene at St Petersburg court in the 18th century which also attracted the composer in a later opera, 'The Queen of Spades'.

This recording of Cherevichki was realized in the late 1940s by the Bolshoi troupe led by the outstanding conductor Alexander Melik-Pashayev and featured some of the best performers of the Bolshoi of the time, such as Elena Kruglikova, Elizaveta Antonova, Georgy Nelepp, Andrei Ivanov, Maxim Mikhailov and others.
