Prince Igor: Paris National Opera

There are currently no dates available for this event.

Discover this epic Russian story, the only opera by Borodin in this universal production of the celebrated Barrie Kosky.

Time of Action: 1185.
The composer adapted the libretto from the East Slavic epic 'The Lay of Igor's Host', which tells of the campaign of the Russian Prince Igor Svyatoslavich against the invading Polovtsian tribes 1185. The opera remained unfinished after the composer's death in 1887 and was edited and supplemented by Nikolai Rimsky‐Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov.

The musical and dramatic uniqueness of Borodin's opera lies in the confrontation of two fundamentally different worlds — ancient Russia and the exotic Orient. Borodin relied not only on folk and church music, but also on 19th‐century urban romances. Borodin's interest in the Polovtsians and other Oriental people was aroused at a scientific conference in Kazan, the 'gateway' to the East, in 1874. The composer's democratic views are reflected in his portrayal of Polovtsians and Russians as of equal rank, equipped only with different temperaments and customs.

Performed in Russian, title in English.
