The opening Overture, is one of the best known numbers from The Fair at Sorochintsy, composed by Mussorgsky. 

The Fair at Sorochintsy is a comic opera in three acts. He worked on the opera between 1874 and 1880, but upon Mussorgsky’s death, in 1881, the opera remained unfinished and unperformed. Several subsequent composers and editors played partial or maximal roles in bringing the work into a performable state. César Cui is credited with bringing most of the opera to its completion. The first staged performance, with spoken sections, occurred in 1913; beginning in 1917, the first of several fully sung versions reached the stage.
