Arguably Mussorgsky's greatest work, Khovanshchina is an opera of immense power and humanity set in the time when Peter the Great assumed power in Russia.
This is a 2 DVD set!
"If you want to purchase a DVD of Khovanshchina then this one has to be it; there is no competition. Ghiaurov is surrounded by a very strong cast who all act and sing well in a staging that skilfully highlights the mood and pace change between the private and the public – a classic operatic theme. This is in the top rank of DVD operas." - John Leeman, Music Web-International
