High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles "Flight of the
Bumblebee" is an orchestral interlude written by Nikolai
Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in
1899-1900. The piece closes Act III, Tableau 1, during which the
magic Swan-Bird changes Prince Gvidon Saltanovich (the Tsar's son)
into an insect so that he can fly away to visit his father (who
does not know that he is alive). Although in the opera the
Swan-Bird sings during the first part of the "Flight," her vocal
line is melodically uninvolved and easily omitted; this feature,
combined with the fact that the number decisively closes the scene,
made easy extraction as an orchestral concerto piece possible.
