Overture, Russian and Ludmilla Glinka
Glinka was the father of modern Russian music, and this opera, his second, was one of the first big works of a really national character which the country produced. The tale is founded on an early poetical romance by Pushkin, and the poet himself had agreed to make it into an opera libretto for Glinka. Almost immediately afterwards, however, he was killed in a duel, and the libretto, as the composer used it, was the work of no fewer than five different hands.
The story is a blend of fairy lore and old Russian legend. Ludmilla, the daughter of a Grand Duke, has three suitors, of whom she prefers the Knight Russian. She is carried off by magic powers, and the whole story is taken up with Russian's heroic conflict with these and his overcoming of one dread magic spell after another to win his bride in the end.
