Boris Godunov

Episode Home | Podcast Home | Episodes

This week, we head to Russia to discuss Pushkin’s great lyrical masterpiece Boris Godunov, a compelling exposé of the seductive appeal of power and the price that must be paid for it. Declan and Nick discuss the beginnings of their Russian ensemble, the mystery of how electorates behave, and the show’s Shakespearean scope.

The music in this episode was composed by Paddy Cunneen for The Winter’s Tale (2016-17)
The additional music used in this episode was composed by Maxim Gutkin for Boris Godunov (2000-2010)
