METROPOLITAN OPERA GUILD LECTURE SERIES (New York, NY)

Russian Opera Study Day, Harlow Robinson

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2022
10:30AM-12PM and 1-2:30PM

Boris Godunov and Eugene Onegin, both performing this season at the Metropolitan Opera, exemplify some of the greatest Russian operas of the 19th Century. Although Mussagorsky and Tchaikovsky were born only a year apart, their works in two separate spheres embody a deep divide in Russian schools of composition: a reliance on traditional Russian compositional styles, as opposed to westernization. In this Study Day, Guild lecturer Harlow Robinson will explore these two different schools of Russian classical music, and why both of these continue to be celebrated by opera audiences today.
