For three performances, the Kirov Opera and Orchestra bring to The Kennedy Center the original 1869 version of Modest Mussorgsky's majestic opera BORIS GODUNOV, reconstructed by artistic director and conductor Valery Gergiev and producer/director Victor Kramer. Chronicling the rise and fall of the notorious Tsar, this epic tale of religious revolution, mysterious imposters, and murderous deception combines one of the greatest baritone roles in the operatic repertory with thunderous choral movements of unprecedented power.
