Rimsky-Korsakov: The Tsar’s Bride

Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar’s Bride, performed by the Moscow Kolobov Novaya Opera at the Israeli Opera, contains all the ingredients of Grand Opera: love, jealousy, intrigues, murder; love potion, not comic as in Donizetti’s Elisir d’Amore, but tragic as in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, and madness as in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor – all of them through a magnifying glass.
