This account of foreboding doom reveals a secret between Tchaikovsky and his lover, Ivan, encoded in sheet music. Tchaikovsky's plan is to stealthily evade death. That encoded blueprint survived to this day. Coda is fiction, but is anchored on carefully researched historical literature and Tchaikovsky's letters.

In Bewitching Russian Opera: The Tsarina from State to Stage, Inna Naroditskaya investigates the musical lives of four female monarchs who ruled Russia for most of the eighteenth century - Catherine I, Anna, Elizabeth, and Catherine the Great. Engaging with ethnomusicological, historical, and philological approaches, her study traces the tsarinas' deeply invested interest in musical drama, as each built theaters, established drama schools, commissioned operas and ballets, and themselves wrote and produced musical plays. Naroditskaya examines the creative output of the tsarinas across the contexts in which they worked and lived, revealing significant connections between their personal creative aspirations and contemporary musical-theatrical practices, and the political and state affairs conducted during their reigns. Bewitching Russian Opera ultimately demonstrates that the theater served as an experimental space for these imperial women, in which they rehearsed, probed, and formulated gender and class roles, and enacted on the musical stage political ambitions and international conquests which they would later carry out on the world stage itself. Beginning with the eighteenth-century imperial court, Naroditskaya illustrates the increased theatricality of the court and the popularity of musical theater among nobles, which occurred alongside an appropriation of folk and court ceremonies into the theater. Through contemporary performance theory, she demonstrates how the opportunity for role-playing and costume-changing in performative spaces allowed individuals to cross otherwise rigid boundaries of class and gender. A close look at a series of operas and musical theater productions - from Catherine the Great's fairy tale operas to Tchaikovsky's Pique Dame - illuminates the transition of these royal women from powerful political and cultural figures during their own reigns, to a marginalized and unreal Other under the patriarchal dominance of the subsequent period. These tsarinas successfully fostered the concept of a modern nation and collective national identity, only to then have their power and influence undone in Russian cultural consciousness through the fairy-tales operas of the 19th century that positioned tsarinas as "magical" and dangerous figures rightfully displaced and conquered—by triumphant heroes on the stage, and by the new patriarchal rulers in the state.

Keiner versteht es so wie Roman Markin, Menschen einfach verschwinden zu lassen. Wer im Leningrad der 1930er-Jahre staatlich liquidiert wird, dessen Foto landet auf dem Tisch des Retuscheurs. Nicht ein einziges Bild soll bezeugen, dass diese Person je existiert hat. Doch eines Tages will Roman nicht dem Vergessen dienen, sondern sich erinnern: an seinen Bruder – und bringt sich damit in große Gefahr ... Anthony Marra erzählt von Menschen zu ganz unterschiedlichen Zeiten: von der Primaballerina, die im Gulag Schwanensee tanzen muss; von ihrer Enkelin Galina, die sich an das Einzige klammert, was ihr von ihrer Jugendliebe bleibt: ein Gemälde des idyllischen Ortes, an dem er starb; von Kolya und seinem Bruder, die sich in der Trostlosigkeit einer sibirischen Bergbaustadt an den einzigen Traum klammern, der ihnen bleibt: die Weite des Weltalls, im Ohr die Nussknacker-Suite. Wie kann man Menschen erinnern? Und woran sich halten, wenn alles verloren ist? Anthony Marra schreibt von dort, wo nichts geblieben ist außer Ruinen und Erinnerungen. Von dem, was uns auseinanderreißt, und dem Kitt, der uns alle zusammenhält – der Hoffnung auf Erlösung. Geschichten von berückender Schönheit, die zusammen so episch und ergreifend sind wie ein Roman.
