Who the Devil is in "The Demon"? Opera by Anton Rubinstein, recorded by the 
Soviets in 1950 with the Bolshoi Theatre Company, conducted by Melik-Pashayev. 
Only a few names appear on the labels, none on the front cover, the libretto 
says nothing, but several sources link to a reissue by Opera d'Oro from which 
I've come up with this list of performers, but no indication of what roles they 
sing. And this opera isn't listed on the CLOR site.

Tatiana Talakhadze (soprano)
Vladimir Gavryushov (bass)
Alexei Ivanov (baritone)
Elena Gribova (mezzo-soprano)
Sergei Krasovsky (bass)
Alexander Khosson (tenor)
Ivan Kozlovsky (tenor)
Maria Kuznetsova (soprano)
