|Extra Information||After the Russian Revolution a new libretto was prepared by Sergey Gorodetsky (1884-1967), in which the name of the Tsar was replaced throughout. This Soviet version of the opera was renamed Ivan Susanin (which had in fact been Glinka's original working title, before it was premiered as A Life for the Tsar)|
