Opera Boris Godunov at the Bolshoi Theatre
August 31, 2018 20:52


"Boris Godunov" was destined to become the most popular Russian opera in the West, expressing the spirit of the Russian people and their “mysterious soul”. This outstanding work of opera art, among other things, got wonderful promoters in the face of entertaining genius Sergei Diaghilev and Fedor Chaliapin, an unsurpassed performer of the title part.

The Bolshoi Theater presents "Boris Godunov" composed by renowned Rimsky-Korsakov. However, the opera has the scene "At Basil the Blessed" with the orchestration by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov added. It was first time performed at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1927.

The opera "Boris Godunov" premiered at the Bolshoi Theater back in 1888. For some reason, it quickly got off the stage. The second time this opera appeared in the repertoire of the Bolshoi in 1901. That remarkable event was associated with Fyodor Chaliapin, the unbeatable Boris Godunov performer, joining the troupe. Famous tenor Leonid Sobinov sang the part of the Pretender in that version.

“Boris Godunov” performed on the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre nowadays is even more symbolic. The stage version by Leonid Baratov is famous as the paragon of the Soviet “grand style”. This performance of myth is vividly distinguished from everything that the modern Western opera world has in its repertoire.
It emphasizes the identity of the Bolshoi Theatre and demonstrates the stylistic traditions preserved at the theater. “Guarded with its solid age, fascinating with its monumental ornamentality and surrounded with legends, Boris Godunov of the Bolshoi Theater is now perceived as an opera – myth”, - art critic Irina Kotkina emphasizes.
