Boris Godunov Tickets
The masterpieces like Boris Godunov are the reason why theater entertainment is still much in demand. Composed by the Russian musician Modest Mussorgsky in the late 1860s, it took many years to get the permission to be played at the theaters and the reason was the absence of a female role in the opera. It was perhaps impossible for theater administration to believe that an opera can exist unless dominated by the females.

Mussorgsky did some retouching and finally got the permission to stage it at the Mariinsky Theatre in 1873. The public response was replenishing, the critical appreciation and the audience enthusiasm was memorable for the entire crew. Boris Godunov gave Mussorgsky a new identity and overnight he became the master composer of his time.
The same opera which was not allowed to be played at first had now become the most demanding theater event. The youngsters were seen singing the songs from the opera, and theaters were lined in to get the dates. The original play was very long but after its second performance, many scenes from the original version were cut to make it shorter. First performance outside Saint Petersburg was held in 1888 at the Bolshoy Theater, Moscow. In the next 50 years, Boris Godunov had crossed the Russian boundaries and traveled deep into the theaters of Europe and America. It was the first time that a Russian opera had been received so warmly in the European theaters as the Russian theaters were themselves dominated by the Western work. You should watch this opera at least once for experiencing Modest Mussorgsky?s great musical talent projected in a wonderful plot. So order your Boris Godunov Tickets now and watch this magnificent opera!
Modest Mussorgsky was born in 1839 at Karevo near St. Petersburg. He worked as a civil servant for quite some time but nurtured his music talents side by side. Mussorgsky is one of the Five Russian musicians who introduced some stunning innovation to the Russian music. His work is the memory of glorious Russian past which made it such an important civilization. Mussorgsky preserved the Russian folklore, history and nationalism in his music and made so sensationally awakening that the theaters which were dominated by the Western work echoed with his master compositions. His work include Khovanshchina, Night on Bald Mountain, The Nursery, Songs and Dances of Death, Pictures at an Exhibition and of course Boris Godunov.
