Movie Reviews

The best Boris Godunov Opera ever filmed!?
Dag Stomberg | St. Andrews, Scotland | 05/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Reviewing my comments and those written by others about this extaordinary opera, I do not think I can better what has been written in THE GRAMOPHONE
magazine, "This is masterly on almost every count, musical and visual, and would now be the outright choice for this work in all media...Front stage, as it were, are some of the best of the current generation of
Russian singers...Gergiev is another of the recording's heros. Seldom, if
ever...has the score sounded so hauntingly beautiful and apt for this huge
panorama of seventeenth-century Russia.. Don't miss this riveting experience."

Pesonally, I experienced the comment by my father, Dr. D W Stomberg, many years ago that a San Francisco staged production was boring, he almost fell asleep during the presentation. Not now, say I, this is all of the
aforementioned and more!

Best Boris
Samuel Bak | USA | 04/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having seen several live performances of this extraordinary opera, among them the Metropolitan, (I am 75), I consider this DVD a real treasure!"
Gripping Production
Paul L. McKaskle | Berkeley, California | 04/18/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is mainly to echo other rave reviews. The singing is simply spectacular in every role. Lieferkus as Rangoni and Lloyd as Boris are incredible both singing and acting. The staging captures what I think was the true intent of Mussorgsky in writing this opera--as expressed by the plaintive words of the Simpleton at the very end of the opera--the suffering of Russia."
