About the opera:

Ever since Fyodor Chaliapin’s triumphant appearance in the role at the Paris Opera, Boris Godunov is consid­ered by Russian and world audiences to be the chief personage of Russian opera. For the whole world today Mussorgsky’s opera is a key work on the abstract nature of power in general, with no need for concrete historical associations or the literal reproduction of realia.

Mussorgsky’s music, with its impetuous boldness, tangible back-to-the-soil solidity and incisive characterization, is of itself sufficient explanation for the tenacity of life of Boris Godunov.

Nowadays this opera remains one of the symbols of Russian music and Russian.
