I recently bought the Brilliant classics version this opera and loved it, but there was no English libretto. I downloaded the score, so I could follow the music and of course the Russian text was there, but I can't read Russian.

I searched for an English libretto without success, but I did find a French libretto which I have now translated. So here are the French and English alongside each other:

If anyone who knows French would care to point out any mistranslations, or if anyone who knows Russian would care to point out where the French (and my English) are far from the original, then I would be very grateful.
