… supposedly celebrating the centenary of the Russian Revolution.

*“The improbable, but spectacular, fantasy is ended when the villainous
reactionary is assassinated.*

*Pountney and company manage to bring Mussorgsky’s tale of a convoluted
episode in Russian history to vivid life, but at three hours 30 minutes
this is a marathon. *

*But what this makes this so enjoyable, as so often at the WNO, is the
majestic chorus who take the honours with a sound that could almost sweep
across to the Russian steppes.”*
