Synopsis:
With Boris Godunov Mussorgsky sets the stage, skillfully embodying Mother Russia in his monumental tale of Nation and Tsar at an eventful turn in history. Two more texts by Pushkin see achingly lyrical realisations by Tchaikovsky, who first tells of the callous, youn Eugene Onegin and his tragic story of illusion, disaffection and frustrated love, and then, in Pique Dame, of the soldier Hermann, who is obsessed with the aristocratic Lisa and with coaxing a winning secret from her gambling grandmother, the Queen of Spades.
In Rimsky- Korsakov's The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh, his finest work for the stage, the mastei orchestrator spins a supernatural tale with the mystical flavour and steady unfold ing of a legend of redemption, while Shostakovich runs the gamut of love, lust, power and oppression 'Lady Macbeth' of Mtsensk, exploring the shadowy boundaries between victim and perpetrator. Orlin Anastassov, Bo Skovhus, Ew. Podles and Eva-Maria Westbroek shine in the title roles, as does Svetlana Ignatovich as the forest maiden Fevroniya, in vivid, opulent productions from De Nederlanse Opera and Barcelona's Liceu.
