Adaptation of Rimsky-Korsakov opera
9 November 2006 | by Vadim_MakarovSee all my reviews

This cartoon is based on the eponymous opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, abridged somewhat for the film. Music from the opera is used through the film and some arias are sung by well-known voices of the time; many of the dialogues in the film, however, are not sung but are spoken in plain voice.

Stylized traditional Russian folk costumes and "terem" style wooden architecture are shown in the scenes of the town.

If you like the opera, it is perhaps worth seeing this film. Otherwise, listening to a recording of the opera (there is, for example, a full recording made at about the same time as the film), or actually going to it, would be a better introduction.
