About

Boris Godunov was performed for the first time in the open air in front of St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia in 2014. This spectacular production, performed 90 years after the cathedral’s consecration, was conceived by Plamen Kartaloff, the director of Sofia Opera and dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of the famous Bulgarian bass Boris Christoff and the 85th anniversary of the birth of Nicolai Ghiaurov. Both artists were world-renowned for their interpretations of the role of Boris. In this production, the role is sung by the great Bulgarian bass Martin Tsonev.
