The Lyric Stage: Nov. 4 - Russian Opera

Prince Igor is best known for the Polovtsian Dances. In fact perhaps Russian opera itself is best known for the Polovtsian Dances, and this week we have those dances for you in an idiomatic, spectacular version conducted by Valery Gergiev with the Kirov Opera orchestra and chorus. But Russian opera is much more than the Polovtsian Dances, as the other excerpts we have this week show. Valery Gergiev leads the coronation scene and Boris' death scene from Boris Godiunov, and Sir George Solti and Renee Fleming perform the letter scene from Eugene Onegin. Those and more this Sunday night at 8PM (11-04-18) on the Lyric Stage.
