Notes & Reviews:
Modest Mussorgsky is one of the Russian composers known as 'The Five', striving to achieve a uniquely Russian musical identity, he was an innovator of Russian music during the Romantic period. This opera in five acts is about the rebellion of Russian Prince Ivan Khovansky, the Old Believers and the Streltsy, against Peter the Great, who was attempting to institute Westernizing reforms to the country. Upon Peter's success, the rebellion is crushed and the opera ends with Khovansky and his follower's mass suicide.Notes & Reviews:
