In summer of 2009 the Theatre of Alexey Rybnikov presented the new production of rock-opera "Junona and Avos", which was very successful. Alexey Rybnikovi full author’s version is aimed to restore the original idea of rock-opera.

The plot of rock-opera is based on actual events and is dedicated to the trip of Russian national official, Nikolai Petrovich Rezanov, to California in the year of 1806. In California, he met a young Konchita Argueljo, San Francisco governor's daughter. Rezanov and Konchita got engaged. In order to get permission to marry with Catholic, Rezanov had to go back to St. Petersburg, to the emperor. But on the back way, he became ill and died. Konchita did not believe the death of her fiancé and only in the year of 1842 the sad message reached her. Then she went to the monastery, where died.

After two centuries happened symbolic reunion of Konchita and Rezanov. In autumn of 2000 California sheriff brought to Krasnoyarsk rose and mold from Konchita`s grave and put them to the white cross, one side of which says, "I never forget you" and another "I cannot see you ever" - the most famous words of rock-opera ballad.
