The Demon is an opera in three acts (six scenes) by Russian composer Anton Rubinstein.
The work was composed in 1871.
The libretto was by Pavel Viskovatov, based on the poem of the same name by Mikhail Lermontov.
Lermontov's poem was banned as sacrilegious until 1860. Its popularity and its lurid story made it an excellent candidate for an opera libretto, and Rubinstein himself worked out the scenario from which Viskovatov produced the final text.The opera was premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, on 25 January 1875, conducted by Eduard Nápravník.
The stage design was by Mikhayil Bocharov, Matvey Shishkov, and Lagorio.
The Moscow premiere was in 1879 at the Bolshoi Theatre, conducted by Enrico Bevignani.
The opera was published by V. Bessel and Co., St. Petersburg, in 1876.A further edition was in 1968 by Muzgiz, Moscow.
