About the opera
Boris Godunov is a milestone of the Russian musical school of the 19th century. Plots, intrigues and rebellions are the main moods/spirits in Musorgskij’s masterpiece inspired by one the most famous Russian writers, A.S. Pushkin. The story takes place in Russia in the 16th century when the country falls into choas after the heir assassination. Boris is the illegitimate Tzar and he knows it: the opera guides us through his anguish, regrets, his huge will to power and its inevitable conseguences. Boris' conclusive monologue is an absolute masterpiece in the history of music.

The staging, created by world-renowned director and designer Hugo de Ana, is an international co-production with the Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile.
