Both haunting and political, the opera is a drama of conscience and oppression where the characters are pushed to their very limits. Boris Godunov, performed by the excellent Bryn Terfel, is considered to be one of the greatest and most complex bass-baritone roles, and the monumental score is enhanced by huge choral forces. Bookings: Toi Toi Big Band Concert Family Easter show featuring the Big Band Brothers and PikuŻi at Manoel Theatre, Valletta at 16:00 and 18:00.
