This Mussorgsky piece tells the tale of a Russian ruler who continues to dwell on the boy who he had sentenced to death
in order to gain the crown. When a novice learns of the story and begins to have nightmares about the subject, he plots
to destroy Godunov. The opera is sung in Russian with English subtitles and was originally written in 1868.
This Russian opera is conducted by Vassily Sinaisky and directed by Julia Pevzner with a return to the stage by Samuel
Ramey, who plays Boris Godunov. Originally produced by the Grand Théâtre de Genève this opera is inspiring
and intense as it goes through the “emotional disintegration” of the lead character (according to its website).
