Pan Voyevoda

Pan Voyevoda

"Pan Voyevoda" ( _ru. Пан воевода, transliteration "Pan vojevoda"; Polish "Pan wojewoda" -- literally "The Gentleman Provincial Governor"), is an opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. It is based on a libretto by Il’ya Tyumenev. The work was completed in 1903, was first performed in October 1904, and has proved to be one of Rimsky-Korsakov's least-successful works.

Performance history

The St Petersburg Premiere took place on 16 October (O.S. 3 October) 1904 at the Great Hall of the St. Petersburg Conservatory in St. Petersburg. The conductor was Vyacheslav Suk.

In the following year, the opera was given its Moscow premiere on
27 September 1905 at the Bolshoy Theatre conducted by Sergey Rakhmaninov.

Another notable performance took place on 12 May 1905 in Warsaw.

ynopsis

Maria Oskolsky is in love with Boleslav Chaplinsky, but is coveted by Pan Voyevoda, who disregards her lover's claim. Yadviga, who has designs upon the Voyevoda, obtains from a sorcerer, Dorosha, a poison which during a banquet she pours into Maria's glass; but the Voyevoda, drinking from it in error, expires, and Chaplinsky, who is lying under a sentence of death, is released.
