Modest Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov is considered the most important Russian opera ever written. Mussorgsky rejected Western conventions in classical music, instead forging a uniquely Russian style that gives Boris Godunov its arresting and unforgettable sound. Starring Orlin Anastassov as the titular Czar of Russia, Ian Storey as the Pretender to the Throne, and Peter Bronder as Prince Shuysky, with Gianandrea Noseda at the podium. From the Teatro Regio di Torino.
