    Gingerbread Nightmare

    Directed by Achim Freyer, the production avoided the opera’s saccharine tendencies, instead offering a direct line to the primal terrors that many adults may still remember from childhood. Its grotesqueries were balanced by a light touch and a level of stylisation that kept everything just unreal enough. It was, in short, an exemplary fairy-tale, unsanitised and slightly unhinged. The parents who end up seeing it over the holidays may find themselves enjoying it as much as their children

    Mr Haitink, who has been conducting the symphony for half a century and whose 1970 recording is regarded by many as a classic, seemed to have little time for such fanciful ideas. In the course of the evening he re-framed it as a monumental struggle with fate, a work of rage and uncertainty belonging not to some imagined afterlife, but to our own corporeal existence. The Berlin Philharmonic, whose unfailingly elegant playing was sometimes pushed to extremes of hushed slowness, gave Mr Haitink’s extraordinary vision an immediacy that only a handful of orchestras in the world would have been able to match. The result was a thrilling, emotionally draining and wholly unforgettable triumph of a performance.

    This may yet change

    Although Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov composed more than a dozen operas during his career, his best known contribution to the world of musical drama – at least for western audiences – may well be his orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov. While many of his own operatic works apparently enjoy much greater popularity in Russia, in the west they have, to this point, remained under-performed and under-recorded. However this may yet change. One of Rimsky-Korsakov’s more intriguing works, Die Zarenbraut (The Tsar’s Bride), has recently [3 October 2013] been issued a new letter of introduction by the Staatsoper Berlin, whose enormously successful new production is not only a persuasive argument for the opera’s inclusion in the western canon, but also the first genuinely unmissable event of the city’s new season. The story of Die Zarenbraut is drawn from an obscure event in the life of Ivan the Terrible: in 1571, Ivan’s third wife, Marfa Sobakina, died of unknown causes only a few days after
