Notes & Reviews:
The Voyevoda, Tchaikovsky's first opera, was composed to the plot of Alexandr Ostrovsky's comedy A Dream on the Volga. The playwright planned to write the libretto himself, but the two men soon found themselves embroiled in a creative disagreement, and Tchaikovsky had to finish the libretto on his own. Tchaikovsky resumed his work in late October 1867 at the instance of singer Alexandra Menshikova, performer of the role of Marya Vlasyevna, who planned to showcase the opera at her benefit. In July 1868, the opera was completed. It was premiered on October 30, 1869 at the Bolshoi Theatre, and was very well received by the audience.Notes & Reviews:
