Honest blacksmith Vakula is in love with the beautiful but proud Oksana. But how on earth will he manage the impossible task she sets him before Christmas?

Bass-baritone, cellist and storyteller Matthew Sharp joins Chroma musicians to perform music by Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninov and Borodin as well as Ukrainian folk music.
