The Invisible City of Kitezh, completed in 1905, is a remarkable opera that fuses folklore, mysticism and realism. Its subject is the story of the advancing Mongol army’s entry to Great Kitezh and the city’s subsequent miraculous survival. Rejecting archaisms and the more religiously inclined suggestions of his librettist, Rimsky-Korsakov sought to create an opera that “is contemporary and even fairly advanced”. It is therefore through-composed, hinting at times at Wagnerian procedure, and flooded with the composer’s rich, apt and brilliant orchestral palette, fully supportive of the powerful vocal writing.

"...there’s little doubt that The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevronya (to give the work its full title) is Rimsky-Korsakov’s dramatic masterpiece, and one of the 20th century’s most underrated scores. It proved to be Rimsky’s penultimate opera, but while composing it he felt sure it would be his last, and a sense of valediction seems to permeate the ravishingly beautiful score, as well as the plot’s combination of fairytale, pantheistic and Christian elements... Tatiana Monogarova is very fine in the role of Fevronya—it’s hard to think of who might sing it better these days—and the tenor Vitaly Panfilov makes a decent Vsevolod… For anyone who doesn’t know this remarkable work, it’s a must-buy at a bargain price." ****

Andrew Clements - The Guardian - March 2012


"...this is a work which should be in the collection of everyone who is interested in nineteenth century opera, romantic music, or Russian music of the period. It is quite simply - to employ a much over-used phrase - a neglected masterpiece..."
