Boris Godunov (Met Opera)
Bass Rene Pape takes on one of the greatest roles in a production by monumental theater and opera director Peter Stein, in his Met debut. Valery Gergiev conducts Mussorgsky's soulful spectacle, which captures the suffering and ambition of a nation. "Boris Godunov is a masterpiece," Stein says. "The challenge is to transmit the enormous emotional depth of the whole thing. Boris is the czar, but he is expressing a problem we all have: the consequences of human actions."
