Amsterdam Invisible City of Kitezh - full review

Rimsky-Korsakov's Invisibe City of Kitezh is on now in Amsterdam at De Nederlandse Opera. Marc Albrecht conducts an all-Russian cast in a Tcherniakov production that whizzes between extremes of gloriousness and frustration. A bit like the story. Since we often get semi-staged Amsterdam productions at the Barbican, pay attention ! And please read Jim Sohre's detailed review "Amsterdam's Invisble, risible Kitezh" in  Opera Today - brilliant writing, so evocative and impossible to summarize. Enjoy, enjoy, this is a great read! To hear a full broadcast of the opera with Svetlanov, not commercially available, read HERE photo : Monika Rittershaus.
