Libretto by composer Vladimir Stasov. First performed St. Petersburg February 21st, 1886. Khovanschina is one of Russian opera's infrequently performed masterpieces, a work which has been gaining steadily in popularity in recent years. The Khovansky Uprising (as the title is often translated) is a sprawling tale of the struggle for power in Russia at the beginning of the reign of Peter The Great.

The manipulative Khovansky is powerfully portrayed here by Alexander Vedernikov, another of the world's great basses, little known outside of the Soviet Union. Marfa, one of Dosifei's followers and a fortune teller, is sung by the legendary mezzo-soprano Irina Arkhipova in a performance of great authority and dignity....
