On the 2nd of February the Opera House Stuttgart will bring Sergej’s “Boris” to the stage. Swetlana Alexijewitsch’s award winning book serves as Newski’s libretto – the work will be interwoven with Mussorgski’s opera from 1869 (libretto after Alexander Puschkin). The staging is by Paul-Georg Dittrich, whose introduction (in German) can be seen here. Titus Engel will be conducting.
