While Russian opera is often noted for its strong foreign influences, this five CD set of Russian operatic works delves into the nationalistic and historically grounded elements of the tradition that make it uniquely Russian. Featuring many composers whose names are synonymous with Russian opera, including Glinka, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev, this collection showcases the breadth and variety of Russian opera at its best. 

This compilation features recordings by both Russian and non-Russian vocalists, from the sonorously dark and instantly memorable bass voices of Russians Feodor Chaliapin and Boris Christoff, to the bright and sprightly sopranos of American Teresa Stich-Randall and Slovak Lucia Popp.
