For the first time in nearly 100 years Borodin’s defining Russian epic, famous for its Polovtsian Dances, comes to the MET with a Slavic, Russophone cast.

Dmitri Tcherniakov’s production is a brilliant psychological journey through the mind of its conflicted hero, and his “[...] wonderful staging is dreamlike, wrenchingly human and viscerally theatrical.” (New York Times)

Star bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov takes on the monumental title role and "[...] masterfully probed
Read more Igor's guilt and regret." (Wall Street Journal)
