Alexander Borodin’s Prince Igor

A defining work of the Russian repertoire, Prince Igor is best known in the West for its Polovtsian Dances. Borodin worked on the score for almost 20 years but left it unfinished at the time of his death. The opera was first heard in St. Petersburg in 1890 in a version edited and completed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov. It had its U.S. premiere at the Met in 1915 but remained in the repertoire for only three seasons. After almost a century, Prince Igor returns to the Met stage in 2013–14 in a new production directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov.
