One of the most powerful of all music dramas, Boris Godunoff is here presented in dramatic narrative and colorful pictures, enriched by the melodies of the most famous themes and arias.

Based on true historical facts, the story of the crafty, ambitious Godunoff's ascension to the Russian throne, of the plotting of the treacherous Prince Shouisky, of the rebellion of the monk Grigori, and of the turmoil and strife these men brought to their country in their diabolic struggle for power, unfolds in a manner almost as vivid and thrilling as the actual stage performance of this magnificent opera.
