One of the most beautiful operas in the world literature telling a story of missing the most important opportunity, failing to take that one crucial decision. Of missing the right moment when we meet that one, most important person who could give us happiness. Of wasting the only wealth you have, dismissing values that could save you. It is about the most painful squandering of love and friendship that fate gives us with generous hand while we chase after trifles. Also it is about longing for this sweet land of youth. Not only our youth but also youth of people who surrounded us and fatherland always more beautiful in memories but so much more bitter when seeing her determination in rush into the future.
