ABSTRACT
Maly Opera Theatre in 1928 celebrated its 10th anniversary by the premiere of "Snow Maiden" by N. A. Rimsky-Korsakov. Director N. V. Smolich wanted to return this "not scenic" opera back to folk roots. He didn't interpret this in the genre of enchanting spectacle, as it was on the imperial stage, but in the spirit of the folk-game ritual action. For the first time "Snow Maiden" was staged by the rules of conventional theater, what was showed in some kind of scenographie solution, a new interpretation of the characters and crowd scenes. The performance, which caused the most contradictory opinions among its contemporaries, became the best part of the classical repertoire.
