Modest Mussorgsky
October 09, 2021

Stephen Wadsworth's production of Mussorgsky's epic masterpiece brilliantly captures the suffering and ambition of the Russian people at a critical time in their nation's history.

21/22 Arts On Screen

Bass René Pape, the world's reigning Boris, reprises his overwhelming portrayal of the tortured tsar caught between grasping ambition and crippling paranoia. Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads Mussorgsky's masterwork, a pillar of the Russian repertoire, in its original 1869 version, which runs two-and-a-quarter hours with no intermission. Stephen Wadsworth's affecting production poignantly captures the hope and suffering of the Russian people as well as the tsar himself.
