Synopsis

NCM Fathom brings the fifth season of the Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD in movie theaters nationwide. The broadcast of Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov will be presented live for only one day on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 12 PM ET / 9 AM PT in select movie theaters. René Pape takes on one of the greatest bass roles in a production by Stephen Wadsworth. Valery Gergiev conducts Mussorgsky’s epic spectacle that captures the suffering and ambition of a nation. “There are two protagonists in Boris—the title character and the people he rules,” Wadsworth says. “Through Boris we see the private mind of a flawed leader, and through the chorus we see the volatility of a people skeptical about their leaders. Boris seems to me a good person who made a terrible mistake and ultimately cannot live with it. He yearns for his lost innocence.” Aleksandrs Antonenko, Vladimir Ognovenko, and Ekaterina Semenchuk lead the huge cast.
