Shot through with noble melodies, Mussorgsky's 'national music drama' weaves a darkly tangled political web in which Russia herself is the casualty.

Caught between reformists and continuity, the nation struggles to find peace, and the conflict leads only to death in the opera's shattering climax.

Semyon Bychkov conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and an international cast, including mezzo-soprano Elena Maximova as the enigmatic Marfa.
