Michael Tilson Thomas leads an internationally renowned cast in Mussorgsky's opera. Inspired by Pushkin's Shakespearean tragedy, the work follows the rise and fall of the 16th-century Tsar Boris Godunov in a story underpinned by ambition, power, and betrayal. Don't miss this semi-staged event with original video projections, costumes, scenery, and lighting design that combine to bring Mussorgsky's original orchestration to life.
