Among Tchaikovsky's few works for the drama theater, the music for Ostrovsky's The Snow Maiden, staged at the Bolshoi Theater in the spring of 1873, occupies a special place. “A Spring Tale” by his beloved playwright captivated the composer with the poetry of its images, deep and subtle penetration into the spirit of Russian folk customs and beliefs, and he enthusiastically took up the work offered to him. A certain role in this could have been played by the plot’s closeness of the play to the opera “Ondine” written by Tchaikovsky shortly before, the unfortunate fate of which caused him great grief. Some fragments of the music of The Snow Maiden were taken from this failed opera.
