About

Boris Godunov in Concert

Conducted by Pavel Smelkov, the company sings a one-night-only concert version of Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov, which combines one of the great bass roles in the operatic repertory with thunderous choral movements of unprecedented power. Chronicling the rise and fall of the notorious Tsar, this is an epic tale of religious revolution, mysterious imposters, and murderous deception. Last performed here by the Mariinsky in January 2005, the "fierce, monolithic power" of the score displayed "prismatic shades of orchestral color and an unflagging energy in Gergiev's delivery" (The Washington Post).

Performance Timing:  2 hours and 20 minutes, with no intermission
