Discovering Russian Opera: Humanism in the Face of Tyranny

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

The arts can be a powerful forum for confronting moral issues. In the 19th century, Russian composers, working within a repressive regime, incorporated Russian folk material, and liturgical chant to create a colorful repertoire of Eastern European opera. Two of the greatest stars of the Bolshoi Opera, between the 1930’s and the postwar period, were Ukrainian artists: the Jewish bass Mark Reizen, and the tenor, Ivan Kozlovksy, who was prevented from foreign tours by his admirer, Stalin. This class will examine their historic film performances in Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, a study in guilt, along with great opera by Tchaikovsky, and others.
