Editor's NoteSergei Prokofiev wrote this opera while Nazi troops were mounting at the Russian border, capturing in an opera all the human touches of Tolstoy's novel. This production was conducted by Valery Gergiev at the Kirov Opera house in St. Petersburg, while Russia was undergoing another round of historic changes at the end of the twentieth century.
