Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Cockerel (Le Coq d’Or) is based on a Pushkin folk tale, but the opera’s Orientalism, comedy and sultry elements go far beyond its original influence. The composer saw in the story of a Tsar, punished for his cowardice and despotism, an opportunity to employ satire to condemn Russia’s autocratic ruler, Nicholas II. 

This new production premiered in May 2021 and was staged by the Australian director, Barrie Kosky, a specialist in Russian opera. Critics hailed the “glorious” singing of Dmitry Ulyanov and the “exquisite” performance of Nina Minasyan calling the event “a triumphant evening for all concerned” (Bachtrack.com).
