A sparkling tale of fantasy, "The Legend of Tsar Saltan" was written by Rimsky-Korsakov to celebrate the centennial of Pushkin's birth. It is his most symphonic opera and contains the dazzling world-famous "Flight of the Bumble Bee" among other exciting melodies.
The Tsar Saltan chooses to marry the youngest of 3 sisters, the beautiful Militrissa, who longs to give him a hero-son. While away ona campaign, Prince Guidon is born, and the jealous sisters take revenge by sending the Tsar a message that Militrissa gave birth to a monster, who can never become a hero. The Tsar reacts by ordering the mother and the son to be put out to sea.
They reach a desert island, where Guidon grows up to be a magician and a hero, who saves the life of a swan. Out of gratitude, the swan makes a wonderful and luxurious city spring up on the island. The Tsar, hearing these rumors, wishes to visit the island but is dissuaded by the wicked sisters.
Searching for his father's identity, Guidon sneaks into the Tsar's palace with help from the swan. The swan turns into a Princess and Guidon falls in love with her. When Tsar embraces them, Militrissa forgives the Tsar and even pleads for her sisters.
