Composed using his own libretto, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov created this magical opera based on the short story by Nikolai Gogol, “The Night Before Christmas.” The handsome blacksmith Vakula wants to marry the rich farmer’s daughter Oksana, who in turn demands that he must first bring her the Tsarina’s shoes. Meanwhile, a witch on her broomstick gathers the stars, and the devil steals the moon – demonic forces trying to hinder this romantic union. 

There is little repertoire in musical theatre in which enchantment and enlightenment come together so happily as in Rimsky-Korsakov’s fairy-tale operas, and this Oper Frankfurt production was considered “a perfect seasonal tonic” by the Financial Times.
