In order to rescue his beloved Lyudmila, who has been abducted by the evil wizard Chernomor, the warrior Ruslan faces an epic and perilous quest, encountering a multitude of fantastic and terrifying characters along the way.

The basis for Glinka’s famous opera of the same name, Ruslan and Lyudmila – Pushkin’s second longest poetical work – is a dramatic and ingenious retelling of Russian folklore, full of humour and irony.
