Notes and Editorial Reviews

This wonderful program is a visual illustration of the glorious history of the Bolshoi Opera: the theatre, its operatic productions, and world-renowned star singers. Stills, audio recordings and archive footage richly illustrate the story, with early scenes of Fyodor Chaliapin and Ivan Kozlovsky. Nearer the present day, stars such as Galina Vishnevskaya, Elena Obraztsova, and Irina Arkhipova are featured.
