Ryabov, Olexiy Panteleymonovych   (1899-1955)

More biographical info (using google translate):

Ryabov was a Soviet composer, one of the oldest authors of the Soviet operetta.
Alexey Panteleymonovich Ryabov was born on March 5 (17), 1899 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. He received his musical education at the Kharkiv Conservatory, where he was simultaneously engaged in violin and composition classes. After graduating from the conservatory in 1918, he taught violin, worked as a concertmaster of the symphony orchestra in Kharkiv and other cities. In the early years he created the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (1919), a number of chamber instrumental and vocal compositions.

1923 turned out to be a turning point in Ryabov's creative destiny: he wrote the operetta "Colombina", which premiered in Rostov-on-Don. Since then, the composer firmly linked his work with the operetta. In 1929 in Kharkov, in place of the Russian operetta company that existed for many years, the first operetta theater in Ukrainian was formed. In the repertoire of the theater along with Western operettas were Ukrainian musical comedies. For many years Ryabov was his conductor, and in 1941 he became the chief conductor of the Kiev Musical Comedy Theater, where he worked until the end of his days.

Creative legacy of Ryabov has more than twenty operettas and musical comedies. Among them - "Sorochinskaya Fair" (1936) and "May Night" (1937) on the stories of Gogol's novels from the book "Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka". Widely known in Ukraine was his operetta on L. Yukhvid's libretto "The Wedding in Malinovka" (outside the republic, the operetta of B. Aleksandrov was distributed to the same plot). Not being endowed with a bright compositional personality, AP Ryabov possessed undoubted professionalism, knew the laws of the genre well. His operettas were staged all over the Soviet Union.

"Sorochinskaya Fair" was a repertoire of many Soviet theaters. In 1975, it was placed in the GDR (Berlin, "Metropol-Theater").
