Joined by a fine cast of soloists, Gergiev and the Mariinsky celebrate the great Russian's genius with a world-first release of his raw, thrilling and utterly engrossing opera, 'Semyon Kotko'. Based on the novel 'I, Son of Working People' by Valentin Katayev, who also wrote the libretto with Prokofiev, the perceived propagandist nature of the story meant its inherent musical quality was initially overlooked.
Though not by all, as celebrated pianist Sviatoslav Richter remarked: 'The premiere of the opera was a momentous event in my life...That evening, when I first heard Semyon Kotko, I understood that Prokofiev was a great composer.' Directed by award-winnning stage director Yuri Alexandrov, and filmed by celebrated Mariinksy director Anna Matison, this staging of 'Semyon Kotko' originated in 1999 and has been awarded two key Russian prizes, both the Casta Diva and the Golden Mask awards. Semyon Kotko is now a key work performed regularly in Russia, as well as internationally...
