Mussorgsky: Boris Godunov
It could be deemed symbolic that the Met's HD video broadcast series is resuming with a work that starts with an atmosphere dominated by tense anticipation. Furthermore, this performance of Mussorgsky's opera is a sign of things returning, as Stephen Wadsworth's production with René Pape's grandiose portrayal of Boris at its centre wowed the Met's global audience back in 2010. Conducting this staging based on the original form of the 1869 opera will be the outstanding Sebastian Weigle.
The 'Metropolitan Opera Live in HD' transmissions have been made possible through the cooperation of our partner, Cikánek Management.
