Bloody power struggles in dark Russia at the end of the 17th century. Watershed for the society in a strife-torn populace. In Mussorgsky’s musical folk drama political and religious groups face one another irreconcilably. Will the princely Khovansky clan triumph over the Streltsy and usher in the new era? Gigantic choral scenes. Music on the threshold of modernity. Opera full-out!
