Kashchey the Immortal

Kashchey the Deathless, aka Kashchey the Immortal, is a one-act opera in three scenes by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The libretto was written by the composer, and is based on a Russian fairy tale about Koschei the Deathless, an evil, ugly old wizard, who menaced principally young women. A similar fairy tale was also used by Igor Stravinsky and Michel Fokine to create their iconic ballet, The Firebird. The opera was composed during 1901–1902 and the work was completed in 1902. It was first performed the same year in Moscow. ... more on Wikipedia
