Opera superstar can be seen at two venues

Bryn Terfel in Boris Godunov

One of the most popular opera singers of all time can be seen at two screenings of a prestigious show.

Bryn Terfel will be starring in a little piece of Russian history depicted in an opera which will be shown at both the Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre and The Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury.

It will be shown at both venues from 7.15pm on Monday, March 21.

Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with their new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece Boris Godunov for the Royal Opera House.

The originality of the composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov – who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 – was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated into the second version of the opera, and Boris finally had its premiere in 1874.

Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions.

Bryn Terfel’s assumption of the title role – one of the most complex characters in opera – is awaited keenly.

Tickets for the show cost between £13 and £16.50 depending on the venue.
