Scheherazade has always enjoyed great popularity and twenty-two years later was to become almost equally famous as the setting for a ballet. The work was completed in the summer of 1888 and given with considerable success during the winter season at St. Petersburg, Rimsky-Korsakov, ex-naval officer and one of the five Russian composers who had constituted themselves as guardians of the Russian tradition, was then forty-five. He felt that Scheherazade marked the end of a period during which his talent for orchestration-brilliant, colorful and evocative-had attained a considerable degree of virtuosity and he was now to turn more and more to opera.
