Notes and Editorial Reviews

This program has been digitally encoded from the best source materials available. Best efforts have been made to restore all audio and video imperfections for DVD. But due to the age of the archival film, this DVD may still contain some of the imperfections inherent in the original master tapes.

Modest Mussorgsky’s masterpiece is given the full cinematic treatment in this historic 1954 film by acclaimed Russian filmmaker Vera Stroyeva. With magnificent scenery, lavish costumes and gripping performances from an all-star Russian cast, this is the most complete Boris Godunov ever recorded on film and is a must have for all collector’s of classic opera.
