This curious one-act Opera Buffa is a wry little parable about assassins planning to kill the Tsar when he has his photograph taken. Andele, the photographer, is replaced by the False Angele, but the Tsar proves to be a young man who simply wants friendship, and the would-be assassin, instead of killing him, plays a tango on the gramophone, before the Tsar's official duties summon him again. Jan Latham-Konig in this 1984 recording directs a strong performance, though the dryly recorded orchestra is consigned to the background. The voices fare better, though Barry McDaniel is not ideally steady as the Tsar.
