While at the Moscow Conservatory, Tchaikovsky was briefly engaged to Belgian soprano Desiree Artot . He thought that marriage might correct his 'problem'. She broke off the engagement and Tchaikovsky had a brief affair with a 15-year old male student, Eduard Zak . Many scholars believe it was Zak who inspired Tchaikovsky to write his first masterwork, the Romeo and Juliet fantasy-overture in 1869.

In 1866, the composer relocated to Moscow, accepting a professorship of harmony at the new conservatory, and shortly afterward turned out his First Symphony, suffering, however, a nervous breakdown during its composition. His opera The Voyevoda came in 1867-1868 and he began another, The Oprichnik, in 1870, completing it two years later. Other works were appearing during this time, as well, including the First String Quartet (1871), the Second Symphony (1873), and the ballet Swan Lake (1875).
