Boris Godounov (Boris Godounoff, Boris Godunov) - Modest Mussorgsky

OA 1053 D

Tsar Boris reluctantly accepts the throne of Russia, despite his foreboding, at the beginning of Mussorgsky's opera Boris Godounov.

OA 1053 D

This traditional production is based on what is probably an ideal combination: Mussorgsky's original 1868 version with the addition of the final scene from the 1872 revision. Superb sound and outstanding performances, especially by Orlin Anastassov in the title role, make this the current version of choice.

Turin Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, 2010.

Cast: Orlin Anastassov (Boris Godounov), Ian Storey (Grigory), Alessandra Marianelli (Marina).
