Enregistrement HD / HD recording: Staatsoper im Schiller Theater, Berlin - 10/2013
The argument is based on an historical case. In the suburbs of Moscow, reigned around 1571 Tsar Ivan IV, 'the Terrible'. Widowed, he is looking for a new wife for the third time. He chooses the young Marfa; she loves another man but bends to the will of the Tsar and renounces her love. From this starting plot, the Russian director Dmitri Tcherniakov retains only the frame. A live competition is organised for a virtual monarch like in a reality show called «Joe Millionaire » where competitors attempt to marry a rich man. Here, the characters become the various players of the audiovisual industry bringing an acerbic criticism of contemporary TV.
Daniel Barenboim conducts the Staatskapelle Berlin, with Olga Peretyatko, Anita Rachvelishvili and Johannes Martin Kränzle. Recorded at Staatsoper, Im Schiller Theater Berlin, in October 2013.

“Depressing for all the right reasons … Daniel Barenboim offers a smooth reading of the score, and the cast is outstanding … making the greatest impression is Anita Rachvelishvili’s stunning Lyubasha, a temperamental powerhouse whether crooning into a glass or booming an imprecation.” Opera Now
