Opera: Mussorsky's Boris Godunov


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Browning Cinema

Live from the Metropolitan Opera broadcast in HD

René Pape takes on one of the greatest bass roles in a production by renowned theater and opera director Peter Stein, in his Met debut. Valery Gergiev conducts Mussorgsky’s epic spectacle that captures the suffering and ambition of a nation. “Boris Godunov is a masterpiece,” Stein says. “The challenge is to transmit the enormous emotional depth of the whole thing. Boris is the czar, but he is expressing a problem we all have: the consequences of human actions.”

Aleksandr Antonenko, Vladimir Ognovenko, and Ekaterina Semenchuk lead the huge cast.
