On Friday, September 28, 2012, Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain attended the 2012/2013 opening season at the Teatro Real in Madrid. Her Majesty along with hundreds of guests watched a performance, Boris Godunov, by the late Russian composer, Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky:
“This is the first time the whole opera is to be performed in the Teatro Real opera house, with all ten scenes and including the Polish act.
The production highlights the genius of Modest Mussorgsky, one of the leading composers of the 19th century. “Boris Godunov” examines the loneliness of the powerful visionary, the people’s fascination with false prophets, and the infernal machine of the struggle for power.”
