Extra Information Tchaikovsky destroyed the score of the opera during the 1870s, and only the Overture and the Entr’acte & Dances of the Chambermaids (Act II, No.4) were published during his lifetime. In the 1930s, Sergey Popov used the surviving parts from the first performances to reconstruct the opera, and in the 1940s a performing version was realised by Pavel Lamm, with the assistance of Vissarion Shebalin, Boris Asafyev, Yury Kochurov and Sergey Spassky. The Entr'acte and Dances of the Chambermaids (Act II, No.4) were also arranged for solo piano and piano 4 hands by Tchaikovsky.
