"Birthplace of Electricity" is the first and it seems that the world's only opera written on the basis of Andrey Platonov's work (1981). In 1987, at the Festival of Contemporary Music "Moscow Autumn" there were parts of the work presented - Introduction and Prologue. Despite the fact that other operas by  Gleb Sedelnikov were willingly and actively staged in Russia and abroad, the "Birthplace of Electricity" has never been performed in full - largely due to the complexity of the musical material.
