Opera lovers can enjoy live performances straight from the Metropolitan Opera House of New York at the Met Live in HD season in El Nacional theatre on Saturdays at 2 pm. This time is the turn of Alexander Borodin’s masterpiece Prince Igor.

As it happened with another Russian opera, Modest Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, Igor was also unfinished due to its composer’s demise.

Prince Igor was completed by Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov. The final work was premiered in 1890, in Saint Petersburg.

The story is based in a Slavic epic which recounts the successful campaign of the 12th century Russian prince Igor Sviatoslavich against polovtsian invaders. The new staging, by Dmitri Tcherniakov, shows a psychologic voyage through the hero’s mind while dreams of the foundation of Russia as a background.

The cast is headed by Ildar Abdrazakov, Oksana Dyka, Anita Rachvelishvili and Sergey Semishkur. Conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.

The next operas will be Werther by Jules Massenet (March 15), La Boheme by Giacomo Puccini (April 5), Cosí fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (April 26) and La Cenerentola by Gioachino Rossini (May 10).

Where and When

Teatro El Nacional (Av. Corrientes 960), 2pm. Tickets from $70 - $200 (Argentine pesos) at the venue or Fundación Beethoven (Santa Fe 1452, 4812-5899).
