About the performance

Cherevichki rarely appeared on the Bolshoi stage. A striking example was the 1941 production conducted by Alexander Melik-Pashayev and directed by Ruben Simonov. The great singers performed there: Elena Kroeglikova, Elizaveta Antonova, Georgii Nelepp, Grigory Bolshakov, Alexei Ivanov, Maksim Mikhaylov, Panteleimon Norcov and many other glorified singers of the troupe of that time. Since then, Cherevichki has become a true rarity and nowadays the opera is only performed at the Chamber stage of the Bolshoi in Moscow.

Premiered at the Boris Pokrovsky Musical Theatre on November 28, 2008.

Presented with one interval.

Libretto by Yakov Polonsky based on the story Christmas Eve by Nikolai Gogol

Synopsis

A frosty Christmas Eve is quiet and light.

Solokha, Vakula’s mother and a stately widow, comes outside from her hut. She is courted by Pan Golova, the Schoolmaster and Chub. All of a sudden, a new admirer appears – it is the Devil from hell. He hints at knowing Solokha’s secret – she is a witch. The company takes a walk, Solokha rides a broomstick, and the Devil follows her raising a snowstorm and stealing the moon. The Devil wants to take vengeance on his enemy Vakula the Smith who painted the Devil in an unsightly manner, so funny that they mocked at the Devil even in hell. The Devil thinks that everyone will stay inside because of foul weather, and Vakula will not be able to see Oksana who he is in love with while her father went to the shinok.
