Celebrated Estonian opera singer travels from the Vienna State Opera to sing for the first time in the Metropolitan Opera. This is the first time an Estonian opera singer has sung in New York’s premiere opera company, truly a historic event. He sings the part of Pemin in Mussorsky’s Boris Godunov. Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads Mussorgsky’s masterwork, a pillar of the Russian repertoire, in its original 1869 version, which runs two-and-a-quarter hours with no intermission. Stephen Wadsworth’s affecting production poignantly captures the hope and suffering of the Russian people as well as the tsar himself.
