Rimsky-Korsakov: The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh (Albrecht)
Recorded live at The Amsterdam Music Theatre, February 2012
Running Time: c.187 mins
Content Type: Movie
Opera lies at the heart of Rimsky-Korsakov's colourful idiom, but performances are few and far between; the realisation of his penultimate and grandest stage work is a very rare and special experience.
Kitezh is known as 'the Russian Parsifal), which encapsulates its mystical flavour and steady unfolding of a legend of redemption. A largely Russian cast and production team works within a set that moves from opulant naturalistic scenery to some startling theatrical coups worthy of Rimsky's underrated dramatic instincts.
