Opera on Screen: Boris Godunov

OCT 18

Portland Opera and OMSI are collaborating to present our second season of Opera on Screen, a series of film screenings featuring recent productions from the San Francisco Opera, with a special introduction by a Portland Opera staff member.
Mussorgsky’s masterpiece concerns a Russian czar who is haunted by the political assassination through which he came to rule. As his enemies gather strength and his world crumbles around him, Boris desperately tries to cling to his throne and to his sanity. The title role is the most challenging and rewarding bass role in the repertory; here it features celebrated American basso Samuel Ramey. The opera is sung in Russian with English subtitles.
