Alexander Borodinís opera Prince Igor was the source of several musical themes which were adapted for the Broadway musical Kismet, and one melody became the popular song Stranger in Paradise.
Filmed against the picturesque vistas of the Russian steppes where the opera is set, the story tells of the 12th century Russian prince who courageously fought the invading hordes from the East. This 1969 Kirov Opera, Orchestra and Ballet production was hailed by critics in its original theatrical release, and can now be enjoyed again and again on home video.
