By Modest Mussorgsky
An NCPA – The Metropolitan Opera (New York) Presentation
Bass René Pape reprises his tremendous portrayal of the tortured tsar caught between grasping ambition and crippling paranoia, kicking off the 2021–22 Live in HD season. Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads Mussorgsky’s masterwork, a pillar of the Russian repertoire, in its original 1869 version. Stephen Wadsworth’s affecting production poignantly captures the hope and suffering of the Russian people, as well as the title ruler himself.
