Description
Two Russian operatic masterpieces are combined on this DVD. Legendary bass Evgeny Nesterenko stars in the title role of Aleko (1892), written by Sergei Rachmaninoff while he was at the Moscow Conservatory. Strongly influenced by the Italian verismo school, the score is full of colorful evocations of gypsy life and passionate emotional outpourings. The cast of this expansive 1986 film version includes members of gypsy folk ensembles, adding to its striking authenticity. For Kashchey the Immortal (1902), his 12th opera, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov took his magical storyline from the same folk tale that inspired Stravinsky's The Firebird. This 1987 Russian film version stars the great singing actor Konstantin Pluzhnikov (he is also the Kaschey in the acclaimed recording conducted by Valery Gergiev). Directed by Oleg Yeryshev, the film goes far beyond what could be achieved in a stage production, adding clarity, depth, and spectacle to this poignant fairy tale.
