Once Upon a Time, Russian-style

Today's fun bit of Russophiliana (which is a word I just made up) is a radio adaptation in English of Alexander Pushkin's The Tale of the Dead Princess and the Seven Knights on Voice of Russia. It may sound very familiar to you; it's what I always suspected was going on in that little house in the woods, anyway....dwarves-schmarves.

Or, if you want to hear it in Russian with Pushkin's original iambic tetrameter, you can watch a lovely cartoon version on YouTube, with English subtitles.
