Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Boris Godunov is the story not only of a troubled leader but of an entire nation, and its history is as eventful as that of Mother Russia herself. In this new production, the legendary director Andrei Konchalovsky presents a personal vision of the opera, adding the final scene from the composer's revision, in which not only the Tsar but the people themselves reveal their fatal flaws. Orlin Anastassov stars in the title role, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. The Opera Critic calls it, ''Orchestrally and vocally outstanding''.

... this is a well-conceived and integrated performance, having all of the forces in sync with director Konchalovsky's concepts. Excellent audio recording is also a major plus... Mussorgsky added them to flesh out the character of the pretender Dmitri and unite him with Princess Marina... the added material offers an important subplot as well as much gorgeous music that contrasts effectively with a mostly dark and gloomy score. Bass Anastassov is a young singer to watch... Blu-ray Boris Godunov this is your choice...

... this presentation offers really gorgeous color and some beautifully detailed costumes... this is a really nice looking Blu-ray, with admirable fine detail in close-ups... gorgeously sung and played production and one which certainly comes Recommended.
