Mussorgsky: Khovanshchina

Mussorgsky's loveless and brutal drama of the transformation of Russian society, which led to the rule of Peter the Great within the epic history of Russia, is powerfully modernised through Stein Winge's dramatic and uncompromising production. Performing the version completed by Shostakovich, the outstanding Russian-dominated cast and the orchestra and chorus of the Liceu are led by Michael Boder. Recorded using High Definition cameras and in true surround sound.

****

“A modern production which for all its weaknesses snaps the opera to life.”

Mundoclasico.com

“The cast was clearly superior to the one in Brussels . Vladimir Ognovenko's Khovansky was magnificent both vocally and dramatically, creating a really "hideous" character… Nikolai Putilin made a great Shaklovity… Vladimir Galouzine was an impressive Andrei Khovansky… The chorus gave a magnificent performance… Michael Boder's musical direction is superb”
