For the first time in nearly 100 years, Borodin's defining Russian epic, famous for its Polovtsian Dances, comes to the MET.
Dmitri Tcherniakov's production is a brilliant psychological journey through the mind of its conflicted hero, and his "[…] wonderful staging is dreamlike, wrenchingly human and viscerally theatrical" (New York Times).
Star bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov takes on the monumental title role and "[…] masterfully probed Igor's guilt and regret" (Wall Street Journal).
The Blu-ray includes a "Backstage at the MET" with host Eric Owens:
