4 Hours The Tale of Tsar Saltan, of his Son the Renowned and Mighty Bogatyr Prince Gvidon Saltanovich and of the Beautiful Princess-Swan СказкаГвидоне Салтановиче и о прекрасной царевне лебеди The youngest sister of three is chosen by the mighty Tsar Saltan to be his wife. The Tsar makes her siblings the royal cook and weaver. As they are naturally jealous, they plot the royal bride's end when the Tsar goes off to war. The Tsarina gives birth to a son, Prince Gvidón but the wicked sisters seal the Tsarina and the Prince in a barrel, and throw them into the sea... ...but the sea itself takes pity, and casts them upon the isle of Buyan. Prince Gvidón, who magically matured in the barrel, goes hunting and saves an enchanted swan from a kite. The swan, who is a princess, creates a magic city for the Prince, but he wishes to meet his father and asks her to return him to Tsar Saltan's Court. The swan turns him into... ...A bumblebee, and he stings his wicked aunts in the brow and his wicked nurse Babarikha in the eye, blinding her, as they try to stop the Tsar from visiting Buyan. Back in his city, Gvidón expresses a longing for a wife. The swan appears and the prince tells her of the princess Babarikha spoke of in Saltan's court. The swan reveals herself to be that princess and all rejoices at the propect of their wedding. As the Tsar arrives on Buyan, Saltan expresses his guilt for the treatment of his wife to Gvidón, whom he does not yet know is his son. The prince attemps to cheer the Tsar up with his three treasures (the magic city, the magic squrriel and the thirty-three bogatyrs (heroes) from the sea), he realizes only his wife can alleviate the Tsar's guilt. The swan appears with the Tsarina, the wicked sisters and nurse beg forgiveness, which is granted by the Tsar, and everyone celebrates the upcoming wedding of Gvidón and the Swan-Princcess.
