Alexander Borodin’s operatic masterpiece Prince Igor, its first Met performance since 1917, will be screened at Theatr Mwldan on March 4 at 6pm.

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, will conduct a new edition of the opera - left unfinished by Borodin at the time of his death in 1887 - which has been specially created for the Met production.

The cast also includes Ukrainian soprano Oksana Dyka in her Met debut as Igor’s wife, Yaroslavna; Anita Rachvelishvili as the fiery Polovtsian princess Konchakovna; Russian tenor Sergey Semishkur in his Met debut as Igor’s son, Vladimir Igorevich; Mikhail Petrenko as Yaroslavna’s brother, Prince Galitsky; and Štefan Kocán as Khan Konchak, leader of the Polovtsian forces.

Tickets for this event are £16 (£15) and are available now from Mwldan's Box Office, 01239 621200, online at www.mwldan.co.uk, or via Smartphones by visiting mwldan.ticketsolve.com/mobile
