A life for the Tsar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life For The Tsar [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a very good opera ,in fact it was the first Russian opera composed.
The music is excellent. The most unusual thing is, that almost the whole Second Act is a Ballet & is very colorful,well performed & very tuneful. My wife , really enjoyed this.
The other title of this opera is IVAN SOUSSANIN who sacrifices his " life for the Tsar "
