Program Notes

During the season of 1869-1870, the director of the Imperial Theater in St. Petersburg conceived the idea of staging an elaborate opera ballet based on a subject from Slavic mythology, For this work, to be known as Mlada, he commissioned music from the Russian School of Composition. The project was never realized, however, and most of the music which the composers had written found its way into other of their works. Not until 20 years later did Rimsky-Korsakov decide to use the subject for an opera ballet of his own. His Mlada was begun in 1889, and produced at the Marinsky Theater in 1892.
