“Puss in Boots” is a children’s opera written in 1912. It was written by the great Russian composer Caesar Antonovich Cui (1835-1918), a member of the Russian “Five”, prominent composers who brought a new stage in the development of the opera genre. Caesar Cui is the first Russian composer to write an opera for children. Famous works: “Puss in Boots”, “Snow Hero”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Naive Ivan”. The main feature of his compositions is the combination of passion and poetry that reaches out to the deepest parts of the human heart with sincerity and penetration.
Written in four paintings, the opera “Puss in Boots” describes a well-known fairy tale about the liking of a cute cat. The cat manages to create a rich marquis from a poor young man through a series of interesting and unpredictable situations. With his skill, he deceived Ljudoje, won the castle and the Marquis became a real opportunity for the King’s son-in-law. The wedding is a happy ending to this fairy tale, which is sung with beautiful music written for all the opera participants.
