What was the name of the witch from the poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila"?
Witch Naina pulled Farlaf out of the mud, and Rogdai rode to certain death.
A wonderful character! First - a proud beauty, then - "the old woman is a little alive." In Glinka's opera, she looks very colorful! And she calls her name when Farlaf asks her to reveal to him who she is: "I am the sorceress Naina!"
Not a witch, but a sorceress ... their name was NAINA ...
Call a witch from the poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila" Naina. She was originally more beautiful, which was already enviable to her friends, and then turned into an old woman.
Here is even an excerpt from Ruslan and Lyudmila, where the reader first gets to the description of Naina:
I really remember this name after the first reading of the work. Then, when I watched the movie, I waited, when it would appear and when they would call her name again. The witch was really called Nain. In my opinion, such a very unusual name and beautiful in its own way.
Yes, it is true, she is a witch in the work. Her name was Naina. By the way, the wife of the first Russian President Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin bore the same name. Naina Iosifovna Yeltsina, although this is not her real name given to her at birth. Until the age of 25, she was Anastasia and only then changed her name to Naina.
