LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. Europe and North America are both on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone, eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. In UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

Modest Mussorgskij: "Boris Godunow"
Gesamtaufnahmen oder Liveübertragungen von den großen Opernbühnen wie München, Mailand und New York - samstags ab 19.05 Uhr auf BR-KLASSIK

Kurz nachdem Verdis "Aida" in Kairo herauskam, kurz bevor Wagners "Ring"-Zyklus in Bayreuth uraufgeführt wurde: Da hob man in St. Petersburg die vielleicht bedeutendste russische Oper aus der Taufe: "Boris Godunow" von Modest Mussorgsky! Er fokussiert unsere Aufmerksamkeit auf das Innenleben eines von Halluzinationen und Schuldgefühlen geplagten Zaren. In der komplizierten Aufführungsgeschichte dieses "musikalischen Volksdramas" wird unterschieden zwischen diversen Bearbeitungen, auch zwischen dem "Ur-Boris" und dem wesentlich umfangreicheren "Original-Boris". Der Musikdirektor Riccardo Chailly und der dänische Regisseur Kasper Holten haben sich entschieden, für die Mailänder Inaugurazione (Spielzeiteröffnung) am Teatro alla Scala die erste Fassung der Oper von 1869 von neuem zur Diskussion zu stellen. In der Titelrolle agiert einer der heute profiliertesten Bassisten: Ildar Abdrazakov.

Oper in vier Teilen
In russischer Sprache
Boris Godunow - Ildar Abdrazakov

Xenia - Anna Denisova
