Director Dmitri Tcherniakov
Conductor Marc Albrecht

Recorded live at the De Nederlandse Opera, February 2012

Rimsky-Korsakov's opera is a fanciful fairytale, yet at the same time a parable on repression and political conceit. The peasant girl Fevroniya's prayer that the city of Kitezh becomes invisible, thus protecting it from Tatar attack, is magically heeded. The girl herself, however, is captured by the invaders. The leitmotifs and highly expressive musical tone-painting tell the story, based on a pantheist world view, almost on their own. Grand crowd scenes contrast with a internal treatment similar to the music dramas of Richard Wagner. Marc Albrecht conducts the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and the dramatic staging comes from the renowned Russian director, Dmitri Tcherniakov.

Running time: 187 minutes
Subtitles: EN/FR/DE/DU/JA/KO
Sound format: 2.0LPCM + 5.1(5.0) DTS
