About

In few words:

In Boris Godunov, the Tsar of all Russia is consumed with guilt and sees the ghost of the child he has had assassinated in order to seize the throne rise up again in the form of an imposter. With this landmark in Russian opera, Mussorgsky offers a reflection on the solitary nature of power to the backdrop of the eternal sufferings of the Russian people. Director Ivo van Hove draws the spectator into a monumental set in which man is finally reduced to his humanity and must confront what constitutes the end of the work in its original version: silence.
