About

Experience the drama of Tsarist Russia in Mussorgsky's masterpiece, featuring an all-star cast.

Mussorgsky was inspired to compose his masterpiece Boris Godunov after reading Pushkin’s Shakespeare-inspired play of the same name. It features one of the most dramatically rewarding bass-baritone roles: a noble ruler who loves his children and his people, but whose thirst for power has led him to commit a terrible crime. Bryn Terfel is “a powerful new Boris” (The Observer) in Richard Jones’s new production of the original 1869 score. Antonio Pappano conducts an outstanding cast that also includes John Graham-Hall as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.

“… dramatically powerful, vocally refined…” – The Daily Mail ★★★★

“In Terfel we have a powerful new Boris, sure to turn out more reliable and enduring than the historic character he portrays. He was joined by a top ensemble cast…” – The Observer

“Pappano completely masters Mussorgsky's idiom, contributing a powerfully restrained account of an outstanding score that, in his hands, is as much a requiem as a drama.” – Mail on Sunday ★★★★★
