A rare opportunity to see Borodin's only opera PRINCE IGOR, when Moscow based Novaya Opera makes its first visit to the UK bringing this spectacular Russian work to the stage of the London Coliseum in April 2014.
Conducted by the eminent Principal Conductor and Head of Artistic Direction of Novaya Opera, Jan Latham-Koenig, the production was widely admired when it was performed in Russia.
Directed by the multi-award winning Yuri Alexandrov, the opera is based on 1,000 year old historical events, portraying the collision of two worlds: Old Russia and the Polovtsians, both masterfully recreated in Borodin's score. It is a wonderful chance to see the famous Polovtsian Dances performed live as part of the complete opera.
Part of the UK-Russia Year of Culture, Novaya Opera is the only Russian opera company coming to London as part of the celebrations.
At the London Coliseum for just five performances from 1-5 April, book your PRINCE IGOR tickets today!
