Prince Igor: Kirov Ballet

1998 NR

The sweeping saga of Alexander Borodin's "Prince Igor" springs to life with the talents of the Kirov Opera and Ballet in this memorable 1998 staging recorded live at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. Nikolai Putilin assumes the role of the titular 12th-century royal, who is captured by the Polovtsian nomad Khan Konchak (Vladimir Vaneev) and later escapes, only to see his son fall in love with Konchak's daughter.
