The fame to the composer Semyon Gulak-Artemovsky was brought precisely by the opera Zaporozhets beyond the Danube, written in 1862. It is believed that the work was the first to bring Ukrainian folk dances and songs to the big stage. Another striking feature is dialogs full of colloquial speech. All this helped the author to create truly colorful images.
“Zaporozhets beyond the Danube” is a comic opera in 3 acts. On the Turkish bank of the Danube live Ukrainians who dream of returning home. The adopted daughter of the Cossack Ivan Karas by the name of Oksana especially misses his beloved - Cossack Andrei. Meanwhile, Karas himself, by coincidence, is in the palace of the Turkish Sultan.
