Boris Godunov opera was composed by Mussorgsky in five years from 1868 till 1873, interestingly this is the only completed opera by him and is termed as his magnum opus. Mussorgsky has contributed a lot to Russian music and is part of “The Five”, a group of five Russian musicians that played a Pivotal role in developing an authentic and Different Russian music form that was diverse from all other types of European music. This opera is based on the life of famous Russian Tsar ruler Boris Godunov and it is based on the writings of acclaimed Russian poet and author Aleksandr Pushkin’s “dramatic chronicles” Boris Godunov. Mussorgsky composed two versions of this opera mainly due to the fact that the first version was rejected by Imperial Theaters but the revised one was approved and it was performed for the first time in Saint Petersburg in the year 1874.
Over the years, there have been many changes made in the actual two versions that were composed by Mussorgsky and since then it has been subject to lots of re-compositions, translations in other languages and even re-orchestration. Although revision and edition have been done to this opera by new age composers, Mussorgsky is still valued and credited for the outstanding orchestration and harmonic style that he used in this opera and the changes made by others are now considered outdated. Some of the famous composers that created new editions of this opera were Dmitri Shostakovich and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, the reason for new editions was mainly due to correct some of the apparent technical weaknesses in the original compositions.
At the time when Boris Godunov premiered for the very first time some of the original cast members were Ivan Melnikov as Boris Godunov (bass or baritone) Darya Leonova as Hostess (mezzo-soprano), Osip Petrov as Valaam (bass), Mikhail Sariotti as Police Officer (bass), Fyodor Komissarzhevsky as Pretender (tenor), Yuliya Platonova as Marina (soprano) and Josef Palecek as Rangoni (baritone). This is a four act opera which beautifully flows through the complete life of Tsar Boris Godunov and the writer takes into account historic events like siege of Kazan and also famous historical places like Sandomir, Chudov Monastery, Novodevichiy Monastery, Cathedral of the Dormition, Cathedral of the Archangel, Cathedral of the Intercession, Red Square and last but not the least Cathedral Square in Kremlin Moscow.
Boris Godunov was performed for the first time out side Russia in March 1913 in New York at the very beautiful Metropolitan Opera House considered to be one of the most premium opera houses in the world, this show was conducted by world renowned conductor Arturo Toscanini. After a few months another performance was done for the first time in London at the very famous Theater Royal, Drury Lane conducted by Pierre Monteux.
