Before writing the review, I would like to say few words about Rimsky- Korsakov (1844-1908) opera " The Tale of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevronia". The libretto was written by Vladimir Belsky (1866-1946), and is based on a combination of two Russian Legends : That of St. Fevronii of Murom, and the City of Kitezh, which became invisible when attacked by the Tartars. The opera Was completed in1905 and the premiere performance took place at the Maryinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg , on February 7,1907. This Arrlecchino Edition is quite Laxurious , it contains bonus of several Rimsky- Korsakov Romances sang by various artists and Cantata" The Lay of Oleg the Prophetic " Op. 58, composed in1899 with two soloists. Large Synopsis, several photographs but no Libretto. Listening to this recording and performance of Ivan Petrov ( 1920-2003) bass in the role of Prince Yuri
Vsevolodovich in the great Monolog in Act 2,one can only regret, that no Record Co. Dare to invite Boris Christoff to
Record the complete opera . But not all is lost, and if one would like to find out how this great aria should sound , I
Recommend recording of Boris Christoff in the EMI Edition of the " Icon" series or in the Nimbus Records " Prima Voce" and in the Ariqs and Songs In the " Great Recordings of the Century". Soprano Natalia Rozhdestvenskayq
( 1900-1966) in the role of Maiden Fevronia has a good voice, but unfortunately is no longer in her prime. Her top
Notes are somewhat forced and it creates an unpleasant sound, although she understands her role very well and is always involved. Vladimir Ivanovsky ( 1912-2004) tenor in the role of young Prince Vsevolod Yurievitch possesses
Nice timber and his interpretation of his role is excellent.
