About

Will Tsar Dodon win in love and war, or will he finally meet his match?

One hall, three distinct moods: laughter, reflection, and romance are all on the program in this exceptional evening, streamed live from the Opéra de Lyon! Barrie Kosky, Russian opera specialist, offers up a new production of a masterpiece rarely seen in the West: The Golden Cockerel, the final opera by Rimsky-Korsakov. After over thirty years in the business, this is the first time that the esteemed director has taken on the daunting task of preparing this singular spectacle of Russian opera, a scathing critique of power and corruption that falls somewhere between popular opera and epic panorama, fairy tale and political satire.
