Borodin’s historic Russian epic “Prince Igor,” performed by the Met for the first time in nearly 100 years, comes to Great Performances at the Met on PBS on Sunday, June 22 at 12 p.m. ET. For more, visit http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/ The acclaimed new production by director Dmitri Tcherniakov, in his Met debut, stars Ildar Abdrazakov as the heroic title character, a 12th-century ruler who defended Russia against invading Polovtsian forces. Gianandrea Noseda, a specialist in Russian music, conducts a new edition of the opera — left unfinished by Borodin at the time of his death in 1887 — which has been specially created for this Met production.
