Notes & Reviews:
For the first time in nearly 100 years Borodin's defining Russian epic, famous for its Polovtsian Dances, comes to the MET for the first time with a Slavic, Russophone cast. Dmitri Tcherniakov's production is a brilliant psychological journey through the mind of its conflicted hero, and his "[... ] wonderful staging is dreamlike, wrenchingly human and viscerally theatrical by New York Times.
Star bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov takes on the monumental title role and "[... ] masterfully probed Igor's guilt and regret by Wall Street Journal.Notes & Reviews:
