The classic 1965 motion picture directed by Vladimir Gorikker, featuring the Bolshoi Opera.
The Tsar’s Bride was composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1899. It tells the story of a beautiful young girl who is chosen-quite against her will-by Tsar Ivan the Terrible to be his bride. The actors, singers and musicians of the Bolshoi Opera & Theatre star in this motion picture, which is sung in Russian with English subtitles. Upon its original theatrical release, the New York Times acclaimed the Rimsky-Korsakov score as one which “surgers and soars, magnificently voiced by the grand old Bolshoi.”

A rarityMay 13, 2012By BURTON A JONES, JR. (Manvel, TX)See All My Reviews"This is a rarely performed opera so we can be grateful for this fine recording. It is a black and white film with singers doing voiceovers for the actors. Both the actors and the singers are quite good. If you like Russian tragic opera, you should enjoy this one."Report Abuse
