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.”
“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”
