About This Show

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.

Sung in English with English surtitles. Fantasy, mischief and musical delight combine in our lively new production of The Golden Cockerel, the final and favourite opera of Rimsky-Korsakov.
