Alexandr Vilf / Go to the photo bankSerebrennikov has tried to direct the opera the way Rimsky-Korsakov envisioned it: not as a children’s performance, but as a blatant satire on autocracy. It is no coincidence that, due to censorship, the audience saw the first production of the opera a year after the composer’s death, in 1909.
