Prince Igor by Alexandre Borodine at Opéra Bastille

Published by Laurent P. · Published on 12 June 2019 at 18h56
From November 25 to December 26, 2019 Opéra Bastille invites fans of Alexandre Borodine to discover his only opera and most emblematic work, Prince Igor.

Russia comes to Opéra Bastille… The cultural venue invites music and opera lovers to discover Alexandre Borodine’s unique masterpiece and only opera, Prince Igor, from November 25 to December 26, 2019. A great Russian epic known for its Polovtsian Dances questioning “the responsibilities of a leader with regard to his people”.

This is the story – in two parts – of Igor who after ceding his power to his despotic brother-in-law to go to war, Igor is taken prisoner with his son. A story inviting the audience “to reconsider our own moral values” from “his refusal to negotiate with the enemy” or when he comes back home.

Stager Barrie Kosky tries to highlight “a universal need for ethics” by divesting the work of folklore of the most elementary kind. A work that yet reminds an invitation to travel and offer us to discover or rediscover one of the most fascinating operas in the Russian repertoire. In other words, the occasion to escape from reality for a night to visit the country of Princes and Tsars… Let’s book a ticket, friends, shall we?
