The Golden Cockerel

Based on a poem by Alexander Pushkin, the opera is packed with the exotic orchestration that has made similar works such as Scheherezade so popular. A daring satire on the last days of the Romanov empire, and in particular the debacle of the Russo-Japanese War, The Golden Cockerel is as explosive as it is charming.
Music Rimsky Korsakov
