It was written by the great Russian composer Cesar 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”.
