Opera Quiz: Who Was it – Rimsky-Korsakov or Mussorgsky?

By David Salazar

Composers Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Modest Mussorgsky are actually more inseparable than one might imagine.

Both were arguably the most enduring members of The Five. Rimsky-Korsakov famously completed many of his friend’s unfinished works. And the two had birthdays within days of one another.

So in celebrating these two historic Russian composers, here is a quiz that pits them against one another to ask the simple question – which one was it? We list a fact and then you decide which it pertains to.

As always, have fun!
