The Snow Maiden (Snegurochka), born among the Berendey tribe, seeks acceptance and love, but fails. Her sacrifice (she melts under the rays of Yarilo, the Sun) lets the Berendeys find their voices after a long voiceless winter.

Opera The Snow Maiden was commissioned by Stary Dom Theatre, Novosibirsk specially for the production directed by Galina Pyanova, based on A. Ostrovsky's play Snegurochka. Maria Krasilova assisted the composer in rehearsals. The production was supported by Mikhail Prokhorov Fund, New Theatre programme.
