“Characters at once charismatic and fatally flawed . . .” - San Francisco Chronicle

In this Mussorgsky masterpiece, a Russian czar is haunted by a horrible act he committed years earlier. This version of the opera, focuses on the emotional disintegration of the title character and creates a theatrical experience of searing intensity. Legendary bass Samuel Ramey wowed audiences in the title role, “singing with unflagging stamina, resonance, and an air of tragic death, he created a character at once charismatic and fatally flawed” (San Francisco Chronicle). Recorded in HD, in 2008, and sung in Russian with English subtitles.
