Staging of this opera was waiting in the wings since 1983. This massive epic is of great importance for the Circassian people. We all remember that in the Caucasian War (1817-1864) - to join the Russian Empire of the North Caucasus mountains - Circassian tribes (Adyghe, Kabardian, Circassian, Shapsugs) lost 90 percent of the territory and 95 percent of its population. Part of the Circassians had been physically destroyed, and another deported to the Ottoman Empire. From there, the exiles gradually spread throughout the world - in Asia, Africa, Europe and America. Currently, outside of their historical homeland, according to various sources, live from two to four million Circassians. Tsarist Russia had lost in the war nearly a million soldiers. Government of Adygeya in this year allocated 1.5 million rubles for the opera. Operatic roles sound in Russian, but the author hopes in the future and can translate the libretto of the opera at the Circassian (Adyghe) language.
