Summary "Nachal'noe upravlenie Olega (The early reign of Oleg), which premiered in 1790 at the Hermitage Theater in St. Petersburg, is a musical spectacle based on the eponymous play by Empress Catherine the Great (1729-96; r. 1762-96). Its music was composed collaboratively by Carlo Canobbio, Vasilij Pashkevich, and Giuseppe Sarti, all of whom were active in and around the Russian court. Recently, this emblematic work has started to attract the interest of cultural historians concerned with Catherine's epoch, though before now it has been only superficially known even among experts. This edition contains the full musical text of Oleg in its original form, in addition to the various contemporary explanatory texts and the rejected chorus composed for the spectacle by Domenico Cimarosa. Its goal is to make this fascinating composition available to modern scholars and performers, and thus to enable its contextualization within late eighteenth-century European culture." -- Provided by publisher.
