Czar Saltan, following a haunting melody, finds three young women and married the pure-hearted youngest. While the czar is off at war, his queen gives birth to a son, but her jealous guardian and sisters fake a message ordering that they be killed at sea. The baby grows up overnight, and they land on a barren island that a swan turns into a city for the prince to rule. When the prince denounces his father, the swan turns him into an insect so he can travel to his country and see his father. As he hears of wonders at his father's court, he asks the swan for them to try to impress his father.
