The Fountain of Bakhchisaray

For Boris Asafyev's ballet of the same name, see The Fountain of Bakhchisarai (ballet)

The Fountain of Bakhchisaray (also commonly known as "The Fountain of Bakchisarai") is a poem by Alexander Pushkin, written 1821-1823.

Pushkin began creating "The Fountain of Bakhchisaray" in the spring of 1821, after having visited The Fountain of Tears at the Khan Palace in Bakhchisaray in 1820.[1] The bulk of the poem was written during 1822. In spring 1823, the entry draft was completed. During the autumn of 1823, the poem received its final finishing and was prepared for printing. The first edition of "The Fountain of Bakhchisaray" was published March 10, 1824.

In 1909-1910, a short film based on the poem was created by Yakov Protazanov. In 1934, Boris Asafyev created a ballet of the same name, also inspired by Pushkin's work, and Alexander Ilyinsky composed an opera (1911) based on the poem.
