Boris Godunov – New York Met Opera

Erin Arts Centre Victoria Square, Port Erin

Bass, René Pape, reprises his overwhelming portrayal of the tortured tsar caught between grasping ambition and crippling paranoia. Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads Mussorgsky’s masterwork, a pillar of the Russian repertoire, in its original 1869 version, which runs two-and-a-quarter hours with no intermission.   Pre-recorded from the previous weeks live showing.
