Boris Godunov: Bolshoi Opera
Filmed live in 1987 at Moscow's Bolshoi Theater, Rimsky-Korsakov's interpretation of the classic Russian opera by Modest Mussorgksy tells the story of a medieval nation in tumult. Renowned bass Evgeny Nesterenko plays Boris Godunov, a man accused of murdering the true heir to the throne who then becomes czar amid social and political upheaval. Mussorgksy's splendid score is richly infused with Russian folk music and inspiring national hymns.
