The author of the story, Ostrovsky, wrote “Korsakov’s music to my “The Snow Maiden” is astonishing. I could hardly imagine anything that might be more suitable and could express so lively the poetry of the ancient pagan cult and this cold as snow at first and then irrepressibly passionate heroine of the tale.”

Easiness and quickness of composing the opera were the evidence of not only Rimsky-Korsakov’s keenness on Ostrovsky’s fairy tale subject but of his maturity as composer. The opera was completed in clavier within two months and a half! The sensitive composer could catch the main idea -The Snow Maiden was not cold and heartless, without any feeling of love but she was longing to love, to be near the people, feel and experience as most of them. The author of the fairy tale A.N. Ostrovsky admired the opera. Both musicians who performed “The Snow Maiden” and audience fell in love with the opera at once; it won the composer’s heart as well. “The Snow Maiden” (a spring fairy tale), Opera in 4 Acts with the Prologue. Libretto by N.A. Rimsky-Korsakov based on the like-named play by A.N. Ostrovsky.

MNRCD101-2 Man and Boy: Dada - an opera in two acts
MNRCD111-2 Love Counts - an opera in two acts

MAN AND BOY: DADA
An Opera in two acts composed by Michael Nyman
Libretto: Michael Hastings
The generously packaged, slip cased 2-CD set contains a full colour 44-page booklet with complete libretto.

Man and Boy: Dada is the first in a triptych of chamber operas written by Nyman with librettist Michael Hastings. It tells the story of the unlikely friendships between the ageing Dadaist artist Kurt Schwitters, who is exiled in war-torn London; a 12-year-old boy called Michael, who shares the artist's obsession with collecting London Transport bus tickets; and Michael's mother, widowed by the war. The recording reunites the cast from the UK premiere performance at the Almeida Theatre in July 2004 - tenor John Graham Hall as Schwitters, William Sheldon as the boy, and soprano Vivian Tierney as the boy's mother. Paul McGrath conducts the Michael Nyman Band.

LOVE COUNTS
An Opera in two acts composed by Michael Nyman
Libretto: Michael Hastings
The generously packaged, slip cased 2-CD set contains a full colour 44-page booklet with complete libretto.

Love Counts is a love story between the unlikeliest of couples: Avril, a lecturer in mathematics at a major college who has divorced a man who physically abused her, and Patsy, a middle-weight fighter at the end of his career who cannot read or recognise numbers.
