    Borodin’s Prince Igor Live in HD (Approx. 4 hours 30 minutes)

    Prince IgorNew York, NY (February 19, 2014) – The Met: Live in HD series continues on the big screen with Borodin’s operatic masterpiece Prince Igor, in its first Met performances since 1917. The acclaimed new production by director Dmitri Tcherniakov in his Met debut stars Ildar Abdrazakov as the heroic title character, a 12th-century ruler who defended Russia against invading Polovtsian forces.

    Gianandrea Noseda, a specialist in Russian music, will conduct a new edition of the opera—left unfinished by Borodin at the time of his death in 1887—which has been specially created for the Met production. The cast also includes Ukrainian soprano Oksana Dyka in her Met debut as Igor’s wife, Yaroslavna; Anita Rachvelishvili as the fiery Polovtsian princess Konchakovna; Russian tenor Sergey Semishkur in his Met debut as Igor’s son, Vladimir Igorevich; Mikhail Petrenko as Yaroslavna’s brother, Prince Galitsky; and Štefan Kocán as Khan Konchak, leader of the Polovtsian forces.

    This season, The Met: Live in HD series will reach an audience of approximately 3 million people across 1,900 theaters in 64 countries, and offers subtitles in nine languages, including Swedish for the first time. The 2013-2014 HD season continues with 4 other live transmissions. For complete information on locations and tickets, visit
