IIya Repin - Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom

IIya Repin

Sadko... Why have you forgotten the one that gave you such bliss?

Throw pearls at the one's core, gold at his feet and still he is furious.

Oh, Sadko! Didn't you know that he had all the pearls he desired and all the gold of the world?

Sadko, what he wants is the song of waves, the hymn of thunders and the music of the depths.

Play, Sadko, untill you can't play anymore. Music from the depths of the heart to the depths of the sea.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Sadko, Op. 5
