The Mussorgsky (Mikhailovsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre
Boris Godunov

Opera in 2 Acts

The opera is based on Pushkin's tragedy under the same title and tells about a difficult time in the history of Russia, short and dramatic rule of tsar Boris Godunov. The libretto was written by the composer who also used the materials from "History of the State of Russia" by famous Russian historian of the 19th century, Karamzin. Boris Godunov is a many-sided picture of an epoch amazing in Shakespearian breadth and boldness of contrasts. Characters are depicted with exclusive depth and psychological insight. The music shows with tremendous force the tragedy of loneliness and hopelessness of tsar, and the rebellious spirit of Russian people is innovatively embodied.
