During the ‘Time of Troubles’ in Russia, the Tsar battles to suppress a dangerous impostor and his own conscience. Boris Godunov has gained power through bloody means – the murder of young prince Dimitri, son of Ivan the Terrible.

From ballrooms to battles, Pushkin’s lyrical masterpiece is a compelling exposé of the seductive appeal of power and the price that must be paid for it. Money, corruption, sex and blood thicken this sinuous and radical play, inspired by Shakespeare’s histories.

The 2000 production of Boris Godunov was a co-production between the Chekhov International Theatre Festival and Avignon Theatre Festival with the support of the European Association “Theorem”, Brighton Festival and La Filature, Mulhouse, France.

Additional support from the British Council, Moscow, British Embassy, Moscow, Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and Department for Culture of Moscow.

The first performance of this production was at Moscow Art Theatre on 15th June 2000.
