Based on the story by Gogol, featuring the music of Rimsky-Korsakov. The whimsical and proud beauty Oksana, laughing at the enamoured smith Vakula, asks him to get the same shoes that the Tsaritsa has.

The first video (45:58) seems the best overall. The second (47:04) has too much contrast. The third (46:03) has interlacing. All three are 25fps, rather than the original 24fps.

There are two English subtitles that use different translations, a more modern one (the default selection) and a 19th century one by George Tolstoy (select "English_2").
