Rimsky-Korsakov implemented one of Pushkin’s wisest tales in music, which became the Russian composer’s generally recognised masterpiece. Created in 1909, the opera was a great success in Russia and 5 years later won international fame in Paris during the Diaghilev seasons. Remarkably, the Natalia Sats Moscow State Music Theatre for Children presented its production of The Golden Cockerel in Paris again right afterits Moscow premiere. The performances shown on the stage of the renowned Théâtre des Champs-Élysées were dedicated to the centenary of the theatre. However, the first spectators of the new production were young Muscovites. The charming fairytale The Golden Cockerel created by Pushkin and Rimsky-Korsakov and performed by the Natalia Sats opera and ballet company and a symphony orchestra is an invariable success with the public.
