Klaus Florian Vogt
Young Russian director and stage designer Dmitri Tcherniakov has made his name as a specialist in Russian repertoire in St. Petersburg, at the Bolshoi in Moscow and at the Berlin State Opera. The acclaimed première of this production at the Bavarian State Opera in March 2007 initiated a series of operas from the Slavic repertoire.
With renowned singers Paata Burchuladze, Doris Soffel and Klaus Florian Vogt under Kent Nagano's musical direction, the opera is sung in Russian. It draws us into a bloody power struggle in dark Russia just before the modernist reforms of Peter the Great. The final chorus, which Musorgsky did not compose, is played in the orchestrally transparent version of Igor Stravinsky, the third great Russian composer who contributed to making Khovanshchina a gripping stage work for all times.
