In the north of Holy Russia lies the mighty and glorious town of Novgorod, known to all as Lord Novgorod the Great. And once there lived in great Novgorod a bard, a musician of some repute, named Sadko.

In 1919 Roerich traveled to London where he was commissioned to make set designs for Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's medieval epic Sadko at the Royal Opera House. The Novgorod Market from Sadko, 1920, is one of a few extremely rare designs for this unrealized production; it is a prime example of Roerich's work for the opera and theater, vibrantly executed in his trademark painterly style. The composition is framed by a proscenium, and when turned vertically it reveals forms otherwise concealed in the panorama including trumpeters, a lion and a hilltop adorned with iconic onion domes. Such imagery underscores the artist's early interest in Symbolist painting, and it prefigures the forms, often spiritual, he would later embed in his landscapes.

Roerich discussed at great length the care and premeditation he put into his stage designs:

I never paint the scenery for an opera or a ballet without first having an intimate acquaintance with both the drama and the music. I study both deeply, in order to get at the spirit that lies behind both, which spirit must be one and the same if the work is to be great and lasting. Having steeped myself in the central idea, the inspiration that gave birth to the work, and permitted it to take possession of me, I then endeavour to express the same thought, the same inspiration in my painting, that the composer and the librettist have expressed in music and in words (as quoted in C. Brinton, Nicholas Roerich Exhibition, p. 21).
